Cover story- Lauren Fagan- Catch a Rising Star The Australian soprano, who was a Young Artist at the Royal Opera House, Covent Garden, makes her Glyndebourne Festival Opera debut in May in Ethel Smyth's The Wreckers, a powerful psychodrama set on the Cornish coast. Before that, Australian audiences can catch her at Canberra's new National Opera. She talks life and opera as she prepares to play the courtesan Magda in Puccini's La Rondine
Feature- We all know about Leonardo da Vinci - the artist, engineer and Renaissance genius. But Leonardo the musician? Kate Bolton-Porciatti opens the score on his improvisations on the lira da braccio, his invention of musical
instruments, and his intuitive understanding of the relationship between music and painting.
Article- Musical arrangements originally came into being to allow famous pieces of music to be performed at home by amateur musicians. Now, in COVID times, arrangements allow ensembles to present famous works despite spacing restrictions, and to tour them to regional areas they can't take a full orchestra. We talk to the artistic directors of several major orchestras to examine this recent phenomenon.
Soundings- Check out our popular monthly columns including On the Record, Clive Paget's round-up of the best new recordings; Cutting Edge about the latest in new music; Guy Noble's reliably amusing, provocative Soapbox; and Sacred Cow in which a guest writer vents, humorously, about something that bugs them in arts and culture.
Reviews- Our experienced critics lend their minds to concerts, operas and plays around the country.
On Air and Online- We preview livestreams, cinema screenings, digital events and radio highlights to check out this summer
