In this edition of The Podium, we hear from our colleague Antony Ernst (whom regular readers will recognise as having featured in our November 2012 edition when he was Artistic Planning Manager of the Orchestre philharmonique de Strasbourg). Now working with the Royal Danish Orchestra in Copenhagen, Antony provides us with an update on both his career and his views on European music-making generally.

Other articles of note include new Goodear Editions works that have been added to our growing collection, and a feature of our Member orchestra, the Adelaide Symphony Orchestra. And, of course, Gordon Williams has compiled a Speed Read with some media titbits from around the globe.

Enjoy this edition of The Podium!
