In Tune's specially curated playlist: an eclectic mix of music, featuring favourites, lesser-known gems, and a few surprises. The perfect way to usher in your evening.

Music for reflection and to lift the spirits during the cold weather as February begins. What better way to celebrate the end of the working week than with the rousing overture to Ruslan and Lyudmila! Take Duke Ellington's A Train as you head home for the weekend and race along to Schumann's sparkling Piano Quintet. Take a minute to reflect along the way to Peter Sculthorpe's haunting "Djilile", and Kenneth Leighton's majestic organ masterpiece "Paean", then tap your feet to Handel's setting of "Dixit Dominus" peformed with tremendous energy by the Taverner Choir and Players.
