Year of Wonder – April

In Year of Wonder, Clemency Burton-Hill provides descriptions of 366 pieces of music, one for each day of the year. I made a New Year's resolution to listen to every piece in the book, and I have not yet missed a day. What an adventure! 

I have already posted playlists for January, February, and March on this blog, and here's my playlist for April.

Here's a few of the book's highlights from March.

Ravel, Concerto in G major
Performed by Helene Grimaud, piano, with Vladimir Jurowski conducting

Piazolla, Libertango 
Performed by David Robert Coleman conducting the Berlin Philharmonic

Schubert, Quartet in C major, Adagio 
Performed by the Camerata Quartet
