Last year I purchased a book by Clemency Burton-Hill titled Year of Wonder: Classical Music to Enjoy Day by Day.
And that’s what I have spent the year doing: enjoying at least one piece of classical music every day, using Burton-Hill’s book as a guide. It truly has been a year of wonder.
Whether you have already begun the journey through Year of Wonder or would like to begin now, I have embedded a Spotify playlist for Burton-Hill's recommendations for October.
I have also embedded videos for a few of the highlights from September.
