 Presto Music Podcast, Episode 6: Played in the USA with Rob Cowan

This week I was delighted to welcome back Rob Cowan, who was my inaugural guest on Episode 1 all the way back in July. This time we discuss several recent historical box-sets that collect together recordings by three European émigré artists who settled in America: pianist Andor Foldes, conductor Antal Doráti, and violinist Isaac Stern. Rob also delves into his archive to pull out a couple of short interview excerpts he recorded with Isaac Stern in the nineties.

You can listen to the podcast right here on this page, or click on the links in the player (via the symbol of the box with the arrow coming out of the top) to find it in Apple, Spotify, Stitcher and other popular podcast apps, where you will be able to subscribe and receive notifications when new episodes become available in the future.

We would love to hear your feedback and suggestions for future topics, and guests who you would like us to talk to. Please email us at
