Stage Manager of the Mahler Chamber Orchestra & Editor of 'Between the bars'-Podcast
What will the future look like? Sound like? Be like? Delve into the multidisciplinary mind of MCO Artistic Partner Pekka Kuusisto, as together we probe the limits of the possible and imagine the impossible in the latest episode of Between the Bars. With host Yannick Dondelinger we discuss climate change, holograms, the difficulties of having an original thought, and why women make better cars. Plus, after months apart, hear MCO members talk about the joy of making music together again.
It was the night before Brexit, and the MCO was in the heart of London performing Mozart with Mitsuko Uchida to a sold-out Royal Festival Hall. What would this well-travelled and wordly composer have made of Britain's departure from the European Union? Join us as we revisit his travels as a young artist, talk British life in Europe with trumpeter Christopher Dicken and MCO staff member Mark Parker, and venture out into the city streets to take in the historic final moments on the very edge of Brexit.
Meet the musician who takes being a high-flying success more literally than most. Daniel Harding was only 22 when he began working with the MCO in 1997. Now he's not only one of the most-sought after conductors in the world, but also a qualified commercial airline pilot. So with the seatbelt sign switched on and little chance of turbulence between these friends of over 20 years, join our host Yannick Dondelinger as he sits down with Daniel to talk about flying planes and conducting Mozart.
Sunscreen in winter? Sleeping with one eye shut? Violinist Kirsty Hilton and Trombone player Mark Hampson go Between the Bars with Yannick Dondelinger to share stories about growing up in one part of the world and making music in another, experiencing new cultures, the things they learned along the way and what it means to call somewhere home. And for our first Matti Moment, he goes hunting for tips to banish jetlag and ends up discovering that the MCO has much more in common with birds than song.
