Max Reinhardt

Max Reinhardt shares his favourite tearjerking tracks including music by Jacques Brel, Aretha Franklin and the signature sound of grief in Elizabethan English folk.

Get a box of tissues on standby as Max shares his best tear-jerking tracks; a couple in love say goodbye in a busy airport, poetically narrated by Jacques Brel and the signature sound of grief in Elizabethan English folk created by the legendary lute player John Dowland.

Aside from the weepies, Max also features Malian singer Fatoumata Diawara's new album and créole music from the French Caribbean island Guadeloupe.

Produced by Rebecca Gaskell for Reduced Listening.
