New Classical Featured Playlist – 07/19/2021 – 08/01/2021
In honor of the 2021 Summer Olympic Games in Tokyo, we are bringing you a playlist filled with music that embodies the spirit of the Olympics. The Olympics are a great way to show the great achievements of athletes from all over the world. It is also common for the host country to ask a composer to write a piece of music as the theme for that year’s Olympics. Composers that have written for the Olympics include Richard Strauss, Leonard Bernstein, Michael Torke, John Williams, and more. This playlist includes larger-than-life pieces, triumphant fanfares, and even compositions by Olympic medalists from when the Olympics held competitions in the arts (1912-1948).
