    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. Organised into Occasions and Themes, the book features a classic repertoire of music, including from film, TV, videos and musicals. It also offers an entry point into what for many people is an unfamiliar world, with suggestions that fans of classical covers of Nirvana, Garage, Ed Sheeran and Hip Hop might also enjoy. Each entry will put the piece of music in context, enhancing the listener’s experience and making the music relevant for a modern audience.

    The Bach Cello Suites

    Bach’s 6 Suites for solo cello are among the most cherished of all the works in the classical music literature. Shrouded in mystery – they were largely unknown for some two hundred years after their composition – they have acquired a magical aura which continues to attract and fascinate audiences the world over. To cellists they represent a musical bible, to listeners, scarcely less. Through what are on the surface simple Dance Suites, Bach takes us on a spiritual journey like no other, leading us from joy to tragedy, concluding in jubilation, even triumph. Award-winning international cellist Steven Isserlis, whose recent recording of the Suites met with the highest critical acclaim, goes deep into that emotional journey, bringing to bear all his many years’ experience of performing the Suites.
