Absolute Masters podcast out now

Absolute Masters, a special podcast series from Wise Music Group, explores the lives and work of great composers past and present. Presented by Wise Music Group Creative Director Gill Graham in conversation with among others culture consultant and musician Susanna Eastburn and award winning journalist, composer, and scholar Stephen Johnson. 

The first two episodes are live now, in which Gill Graham and Stephen Johnson take a deep dive into the life and work of Jean Sibelius. Across the two-part conversation, we learn about the man as composer and human being; his relationships; the effect of war on his writing; his cultural and musical influences and his compositional process. With musical excerpts of the great Finnish composer’s work woven in, the conversation is as dynamic and elemental as Sibelius’ music itself.

Listen to parts 1 and 2 of the Sibelius episode now on Spotify and Apple Podcasts.

Stay tuned in for future episodes exploring more great composers in the new year.
