Listening Room 4 of 5

From Summer Sonic, 12:00 pm on 8 January 2015

Cynthia notices a depressing trend in today's programme: a swath of sad music, culminating in a heart-wrenching scene at the premiere of Tchaikovsky's 6th Symphony. But Cynthia asks us to embrace the healing power of sad music, and things don't stay down for long because Global Sounds scheduler Robyn Jaquiery brings a little moonshine of the Rhodesian variety with a rehearsal recording of a popular tune, Skokiaan. And another movie of the mind, this time from the SOUNZ Sessions…Tom McCleod's Cut to Music, a soundtrack written before the film.
