Slipped Disc’s diarist Anthea Kreston has a new podcast spot at Berlin’s Boulezsaal.

For her opening dozen podcasts, she chats up some of the world’s top string quartets.

Listen here to the Jerusalem Quartet talking about their love of Yiddish.

    Whew, thank goodness; I was wondering where the latest Anthea Kreston contributions were. I just listened to the first six string quartet podcast interviews. So great to hear quartet players being asked questions by a chamber musician, and to compare the different directions these quartets are taking. The Jerusalem quartet’s interest in exploring Yiddish music is especially intriguing.

    Absolutely excellent.
