A blissful 30 minute classical mix

In Tune’s specially curated playlist including a rollicking concerto for two horns by Handel, a sinuous gavotte by Ludwig Thuille and Caroline Shaw's depiction of a beech tree.

In Tune’s specially curated playlist including a rollicking concerto for two horns by Handel, a sinuous gavotte by Ludwig Thuille and Caroline Shaw's depiction of a beech tree. The mixtape opens with Johann Strauss II's Thunder and Lightning Polka and closes with Saint-Saens' Danse Macabre - two extremely evocative pieces. Threaded amongst all these are a shimmering Arabesque by Debussy and Grieg's ode to spring - which hopefully will be with us very soon!!
