What is included with this book?

Summary

A listener’s guide to classical music to take you through the day, from getting up and getting dressed, to running, reading, walking the dog, cooking and eating, taking a bath, going to sleep and everything in between

From the world’s most romantic music and the greatest Christmas choral music, to more ordinary but no less important situations such as music to listen to when taking a shower, A Soundtrack for Life is for anyone who has ever wanted to discover more about classical music but doesn’t know where to begin.

Organized by Occasion and Themes, such as upbeat, contemplative or perfect for a celebration, along with key facts and fascinating details about each piece, the book also includes music from film, TV, videos and musicals. It also offers an entry point into what is, for many people, an unfamiliar world with suggestions of classical covers of such artists and genres as Nirvana, Garage, Ed Sheeran and Hip Hop. Each Entry puts the piece of music in context, enhancing the listener's experience and making the music relevant for a contemporary audience.

Author Biography

Scala Radio was launched in March 2019, the first national classical music service to air on terrestrial radio in the UK since Classic FM in 1992. The station’s playlist features 70% popular classical and 30% new and ‘surprising’ music. Scala also aims for more speech content – or ‘storytelling’ – than Classic FM or BBC Radio 3. Simon Mayo is one of the lead presenters and he hosted the first live programme. Other presenters include a range of radio and television personalities, such as Mark Kermode and Angelica Bell. Simon Mayo’s show is Monday–Saturday, at 10am–1pm.
