YEAR OF WONDER: Classical Music for Every Day
As featured in the Telegraph and on Radio 4's Today programme.
Have you ever heard a piece of music so beautiful it stops you in your tracks? Or wanted to discover more about classical music but had no idea where to begin?
Clemency chooses one piece of music for each day of the year, with a short explanation about the composer to put it into context, and brings the music alive in a modern and playful way, while also extolling the positive mindfulness element of giving yourself some time every day to listen to something uplifting or beautiful. Thoughtfully curated and expertly researched, this is a book of classical music to keep you company: whoever you are, wherever you're from.
'The only requirements for enjoying classical music are open ears and an open mind.'
Playlists are available on most streaming music platforms including Apple Music.
