Artful Narratives Media Launches New Podcast ‘Speaking Soundly’

By David Salazar

Artful Narratives Media has launched “Speaking Soundly,” a new podcast featuring Met Opera Orchestra Principal Trumpet David Krauss as its host.

The podcast’s first episodes feature conversations with such artists as opera star Isabel Leonard, violinist Ray Chen, trombonist Joseph Alessi, oboist Spencer Rubin, famed composer and trumpeter Wynton Marsalis, percussionist Evelyn Glennie, bassist Christian McBride, and Met Opera Orchestra trombonist Denson Paul Pollard.

Coming up are episodes featuring Joyce DiDonato and Anthony Roth Costanzo.

“Hear how an accidental trip to Carnegie Hall ignited Emanuel Ax’s fantasy to perform on that very stage, whose music got Christian McBride through some tough times and how Isabel Leonard gets into character,” said Artful Narratives Media Co-Founder Jessica Handelman in an official press statement announcing the new launch. “Speaking Soundly gives audiences new perspectives and never-heard-before stories from renowned musicians, conductors, singers, and more.”

The podcast launches weekly on Tuesdays.
