Your go-to introduction to classical music

In Tune's specially-created playlist, with music from Bach, Schumann and Rossini, plus traditional music from Spain.

In Tune's specially-created playlist springs off with Figaro's entrance aria from Rossini's The Barber of Seville, followed up with some traditional music from southern Spain, then a Prelude by Bach, a Romance from Schumann, and a piece for clarinet and strings by Samuel Coleridge-Taylor. Music from jazz clarinettist Benny Goodman and a song from Canteloube's Songs of the Auvergne ends the sequence.
