Music for the Journey Home – As heard on Classic Drive
Classic Drive is one of ABC Classic FM’s most popular programs, providing listeners with the best way to come home.
In this new compilation for the beginning of a new year, ABC Classics presents the best of Drive’s classical sounds to relax your mind and soothe your soul.
The album features an eclectic mix of music, from the intensely moving multi-Grammy-Award-winning song cycle Winter Morning Walks with renowned soprano Dawn Upshaw, to Erik Griswold’s Georgie Porgie Georgie Porgie, written whilst sitting at the keyboard nursing his young son George. Gems of the Baroque include the ARIA-nominated Latitude 37 performing a Spanish Canzon, alongside inventive re-imaginings such as Thomas Tallis’ Ordinal performed by saxophone, trombone and bass quartet.
This album is the perfect way to wind down at the end of the day, or to be transported in mind and soul at any time.
