Kurt Weill, Weber, Dvorak

The In Tune Mixtape features jaunty Americana from Dvorak's string quartet, sprightly clarinet in Weber's quintet and the sounds of Seville from Issac Albeniz.

Today's Mixtape includes melons as dark as caves- it's another extract from William Walton's Facade! Plus a good wholesome Mozart piano duet, an introduction to the regal Gondoliers of Gilbert and Sullivan, jaunty Americana from Dvorak's string quartet, sprightly clarinet in Weber's quintet, the sounds of Seville from Issac Albeniz and - to finish it off - the original Mack the Knife, courtesy of Kurt Weill and Bryn Terfel. What a mix!

If you'd like to download the In Tune Mixtapes to listen to on the go, they're available on the iPlayer Radio App.

Produced by Philip O'Meara.
