The Gramophone podcast


May 7, 2021

Jennifer Johnston has just appeared, as Waltraute, on the new BR-Klassik recording of Wagner's Die Walküre conducted by Sir Simon Rattle. She talks to James Jolly about her decade-long association with the Bavarian State Opera and its Generalmusikdirektor, Kirill Petrenko; about music in her home city of Liverpool; and memories of Christa Ludwig with whom she studied as a student.

Gramophone Podcasts are presented in association with Wigmore Hall.
