Pastoral delight: sighing lovers, grazing sheep and swinging gypsies!

In Tune's specially curated mixtape: an eclectic mix of music by Mozart, Piazzolla, Monteverdi, Beethoven, Glass and Verdi re-imagined by Glenn Miller!

In Tune's specially curated mixtape: Pastoral delight - after stormy music by Mozart, Astor Piazzolla invites us to celebrate the air clearing with a joyful dance. Monteverdi gives us a glimpse of a couple wildly in love and Beethoven paints the picture of a shepherd happy that the storm clouds have passed. Philip Glass's gentle piano at twilight is rudely interrupted by the arrival of a band of gypsies forging horse shoes on their anvils - to a Glenn Miller beat!
