In Tune’s specially curated mixtape with a dance by Alun Hoddinott to mark the investiture of the Prince of Wales in 1969 and a choral piece by Jessica Curry composed for a video game called Everybody's Gone to the Rapture. Also in the mix are a Sicilienne for flute and harp by Faure, a concerto by Couperin and a love song by Dvorak arranged for string quartet. Weber's jaunty bassoon concerto is followed by Debussy's Tarantelle Styrienne for piano and Glinka's sparkling overture to his opera Ruslan and Ludmila.
