Dean Close @ Home 10 Pieces

Every Monday, the Director of Music will create a Spotify playlist for DC @Home including 10 pieces to listen to (inspired by the BBC’s 10 pieces idea). The aim is to engage as many people as possible (pupils, staff and parents) in a wide variety of classical music styles. It is impossible to cater for everyone’s musical tastes but the series will be broad, covering lots of different periods and emotions – relaxing, rousing, humorous, including a few popular numbers as well as lesser known ones. Click below to listen. If you are not a Spotify user, links to YouTube videos are available below. Happy listening!
