The Gramophone Classical Music Podcast

May 12, 2023

Chandos was named Gramophone’s Label of the Year at the 2022 Gramophone Classical Music Awards in October – a perfect excuse for a series of podcasts focusing on some of the label’s key artists and the people who steer and shape the label. 

This month, James Jolly talks to the conductor Edward Gardner, Principal Conductor of the London Philharmonic and Chief Conductor of the Bergen Philharmonic; in August 2024 he will assume the Music Directorship of the Norwegian Opera and Ballet. His recorded catalogue for Chandos is extensive and is crowned by the 2020 release of Benjamin Britten’s Peter Grimes, recorded in Bergen, which was voted Gramophone’s Opera Award winner but also our Recording of the Year.
