Listen: Alternative Valentine’s playlist

Monteverdi Ballets at Spitalfields Music Summer Festival 2013

We’re mid-way through February which means Valentine’s Day is here! Love it or loathe it, you can’t escape the chocolates, flowers and romantic offers for two.

Although we didn’t receive any Valentine cards this year, we’re still in the mood for some love songs, and so we’ve put together a Valentine’s playlist with a difference. Instead of offering you some of the obvious smooth classics, we’ve selected some beautiful love-related tracks from the contemporary music scene (featuring some of our previous festival artists) culminating with an excerpt from Prokofiev’s (highly romantic) Love for Three Oranges. Happy Valentine’s Day!
