Playlist: Loud & lively – big tunes, big orchestra

Wednesday, September 18, 2019 - 08:08

Experience the thrill of a large symphony orchestra or hear some of the big beasts of the instrument world in this selection of tracks curated by our classical music programming team.

This Spotify playlist is made up of music that will feature in concerts during Southbank Centre’s 2019/20 Classical Season, and features pieces from composers who have written some of the world’s most dramatic music, including Stravinsky, Holst, Mahler and Prokofiev. Listen out for how composers use a wide range of instruments and how they skilfully move between fast and slow passages of music, and soft and loud, to change the mood.
