Podcast
  The Behind the Music podcast is presented by composer Geert Jan Kroon

Cory MD, Philip Harper has been the guest on the 'Behind the Music' podcast.

The presenter is the well-known Dutch composer, conductor and euphonium player Geert Jan Kroon who has gained something of a global following with his interviews.

Insight

The sixth episode sees Philip Harper about his current musical life as well as in different episodes, about how he conducts a brass band, as well as how he composes for the medium.

The 'Behind the Music' podcast started earlier this year to provide the Dutch banding community with additional insight into their movement, as well as "satisfy the curiosity of the host".

Curiosity

Geert told 4BR: "I'm a big fan of lifelong learning and started interviewing some people in the banding scene to find out more about the banding world.

As a composer and conductor, I like to hear how colleague's think and work and satisfy the curiosity of the host! How cool is it to share that with the whole world."

The episodes are in Dutch, although this series with Philip Harper is in English.
