Inspiring

About this playlist

“Where there are dreams, love and inspiration, you can't go wrong" said Ella Fitzgerald, the ‘Lady of Song’. You’ve landed in the right place with this playlist designed to gently encourage you to paint the walls of your imagination with new colours. We start gently with idyllic pastoral scenes by Grieg, Strauss and Elgar before moving to a more soulful atmosphere in the company of three German greats: Bach, Mozart and Beethoven. We then let our emotions flow freely with some of music’s most beautiful depictions of rivers, crescendo-ing into a final symphonic cascade. Whatever your background, project and aspiration this season, one thing is for certain: this playlist will inspire you to open the doors of the concert hall and make memories that will lift you up for a lifetime.

Empowering

About this playlist

In his early 20s, Sergei Rachmaninov fell into a period of depression and suffered a creative drought after his First Symphony was mercilessly slashed by critics. His triumphant Second Piano Concerto, composed three years later, tells a story we can all relate to: an even brighter sun shines behind the clouds and our failures only make us stronger. Personal and cathartic, the pieces gathered in this playlist are emotional crescendos that celebrate the incredible fruitfulness of life’s trials, whose overcoming gets us walking taller. Expect powerful dynamics, poignant vocals, plenty of brass and a rush of endorphins that will leave you wowed for some time afterwards. Browse through the concerts on the right-hand side of your screen once you’re done listening to keep the magic going.
