In Tune's specially curated mix of music, featuring favourites alongside lesser-known gems. Tonight's edition takes its inspiration from the Four Elements: fire, air, earth and water. We journey from Lully's evocation of the ill-fated son of the Sun God, through the bough-cracking winds of Vaughan Williams and the earthy sound of Brìghde Chaimbeul's bagpipes, to the heart-wrenching end of Chausson's Poème de l'amour et de la mer.
