Classical Calm

Curated by Hitske Aspers

Bach without the bite, the gentler side of Classical. An ideal starting point for the casual listener to classics. Concentrating on high quality, accessible and familiar works with a few that may be less well known but equally pleasant on the ear as with its chilled out feel.
