Classical Podcast No. 3 Albert Coates
By Jonathan Summers, Curator of Classical Music
Welcome to another in the occasional series of podcasts showcasing treasures from the classical collection of the British Library Sound Archive.
David Patmore, a retired lecturer from the University of Sheffield, shares his passion for conductor Albert Coates whose flamboyant style and super-charged performances from the 1920s and 1930s were captured in his copious recorded output. We discuss his early years under Arthur Nikisch (1855-1922) and include some of his commercial recordings and supplement these with unique off-air material and an interview with his daughter Tamara.
