Intro with Bryce Dessner
In the podcast, Bryce Dessner talks to Ulrike Thiele about the best job ever, about self-discovery and about the traces of Dvořák and Mahler in his work "Mari".
What music does a rock star and classical composer like Bryce Dessner listen to at home? What do his sister, Hildegard von Bingen and Barbara Hannigan have in common? What does he say when his son looks at him wide-eyed and asks if people know him? And what does Taylor Swift have to do with classical music? Find out in the new episode of our podcast "Intro"!
