Our Autumn 2021 Spotify playlist

We’re keen to start sharing with you some suggested listening to suit the time of the year and the mood we’re in at any given time….there’s so much music Classical music out there, it can be a bit overwhelming…so our team has put together a selection of stuff that’s inspired them at the moment.

The mood is generally pretty chill, as the weather gets cooler, the days get shorter. We can’t think of anything else except gently falling leaves in the piano accompaniment of Clara Schumann’s Geheimes Flüstern hier und dort, you’ve got the glowing warm Autumnal swagger of Vivaldi; a dreamy, smoke-filled dusk from Bizet’s Carmen (which is coincidentally part of Opera North’s 2021/2022 season of Opera’s – go and see it because it’s awesome!) and some gentle, reflective moodiness from Jean-Philippe Rameau, Paul Hindemith, Johannes Brahms – amongst other composers.
