Yearning, consolation, and a bit of cheek

O malheureuse Iphigenia, Gluck's radiantly yearning aria and some skittish Rachmaninov in the Mixtape, plus a cheeky quartet version of Thelonious Monk's Well, you needn't.

"O miserable Iphigenia, your family has been destroyed!" Gluck's radiantly yearning aria opens tonight's Mixtape, along with a consolingly Trumpton-like arrangement of Scarlatti's Sonata in G and the fiery Pagan Dance of Cecile Chaminade. Then, The Unthanks and the Brighouse and Rastrick Band's version of the folksong My Lagan Love, a silvery instrumental work by Hildegard of Bingen, and Rachmaninov's skittish Scherzo in D minor. Plus a cheeky quartet version of Thelonious Monk's Well, you needn't to end.
