News from the classical music scene

A fresh breeze is blowing in the German classical scene! Our June podcast showcases some performing artists with lungs of steel, including Felix Klieser on French horn, Dorothee Oberlinger on the recorder, and baritone Matthias Goerne, performing music by Mozart, Vivaldi and Schumann. And the Ensemble Modern transport us to the wicked city of Mahagonny in Kurt Weill's cynical and breathless opera The Rise and Fall of the City of Mahagonny.
