In the holiday mood!
In Tune’s specially curated mixtape featuring music with a holiday feel from a Russian fair to a Latin fiesta via a Maypole dance, boat trip, children playing and walking the dog.
On this Bank Holiday today's In Tune mixtape features music reflecting how people like to spend their special days off - a visit to a Shrove-tide fair maybe (Stravinsky) or a traditional dance around the Maypole. One thing we want is sun (Haydn) as we take a relaxing boat trip (Debussy). We may pass children playing - and quarrelling in a park (Mussorgsky) and somebody taking the dog for a walk (Gershwin). As the day ends it may be celebrated with fireworks (Handel). We've also a taste of how holiday's are spent in other parts of the world - a rodeo in America (Copland) or a fiesta in Spain or Latin America (Chick Corea). Relax and enjoy!
