Thoroughly Good Classical Music Podcast 46: Cellist Matthew Barley

Matthew Barley’s recording of John Tavener’s The Protecting Veil was released on the Signum label in June 2019. It’s available via Spotify.

In this podcast Matthew discusses how the impact of a skiing accident forced him to reevaluate his playing, led to a diagnosis of Ehlers Danloss Syndrome, and how his subsequent understanding of hypermobility demanded learning how to play the cello all over again.
