Autumn mists and magic

In Tune's specially curated playlist ventures out in the mists for an autumnal melding of music and the sounds of birds on an October evening.

In Tune's specially curated playlist ventures out into the evening, for an autumnal melding of music by four British composers: Henry Purcell, Thomas Ades, Benjamin Britten and Michael Tippett. Plus Janacek’s In the Mists, Bruckner’s Evening Magic and Duke Ellington’s Mood Indigo; and the sounds of birds on an October evening, from Somerset and the Welsh salt marshes.
