Playlist: Romantic melodies & quiet moments

Sunday, September 1, 2019 - 15:05

Music is particularly good at conveying personal feelings and telling stories about human life, and it’s no accident that feelings have inspired so many memorable musical moments. If you’re a romantic at heart, or simply like to listen to music that stirs your emotions you’ll enjoy 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 includes pieces by composers who have written some of classical music’s most evocative, memorable pieces including Tchaikovsky, Prokofiev and Chopin. There’s quite a variety here, from intimate piano music by Chopin and lush ballet music including the heartrending ‘Swan Lake’ and the menacing ‘Romeo and Juliet’.
