BBC Music Magazine - - Tv & Radio -

BBC Sounds is not just made up of radio pro­grammes and pod­casts. It also has an en­tire sec­tion ded­i­cated to hour-long au­dio mixes for you to lis­ten to – each with­out any in­ter­rup­tion.

Radio 3 has put to­gether a ‘Mind­ful Mix’: works to help you switch off and put your feet up, fea­tur­ing a wide va­ri­ety of com­posers from Hilde­gard von Bin­gen to Lü Wencheng. Mean­while, the three-hour ‘Clas­si­cal Fo­cus’ mix is packed full of post-clas­si­cal mu­sic by the likes of Ryuichi Sakamoto and Agnes Obel.

There are high-en­ergy mixes (‘Up­beats’) from Es­sen­tial Clas­sics, too, packed with mo­ti­va­tional pieces from Louise Far­renc and Richard Strauss which prom­ise, in the words of BBC Sounds, to ‘gal­vanise you through life’s crit­i­cal en­coun­ters’.

But if that has you a lit­tle con­fused, the ‘Clas­si­cal Sun­rise’ mix might well be for you. With the fi­nal move­ment of Beethoven’s Eighth and Schu­bert’s Over­ture to Rosamunde, you’ll be up and out the door with no trou­ble…
