Dowland, Lotti, Ravel

From the tranquil and transcendent to the rousing and rambunctious - a unique playlist of surprises and joys featuring Dowland, Lotti, Walton, Handel and many more!

In Tune's specially curated playlist: a mix of music spanning 400 years - from the rich choral textures of Lotti to the jubilant orchestrations of Nikolaos Skalkottas, a grounded Handel concerto to Ravel's sublime piano music. Plus offerings from Bach, Villa-Lobos, William Walton and Anton Bruckner. Something to whet your appetite for a Radio 3 evening!
