In Tune's specially curated mixtape featuring Latin American dances by Aaron Copland and Jorge Morel plus a traditional round dance from Peru. Don't worry though, there's plenty of time to get your breath back in the more gentle moments including Debussy's Beau Soir played by flute and harp, John Ireland's depiction of the Sussex Downs, Brad Mehldau's tribute to J.S.Bach followed by the great master's Air on a G String. The pace starts to pick up again in Thea Musgrave's vocal setting of Sir Thomas Wyatt's poem "Hate whom ye list, for I care not".
