I don’t know that much about classical music.
Symphinity is a gorgeous way to learn. Its various playlists take me on many musical journeys; introducing me to various composers and the worlds in which they lived.
The carefully curated playlists by Chris Barstow consist of recently recorded music for Radio 3 – including selections from this year’s Proms.
I have been helping spread the word about Symphinity: Radio 3 Breakfast presenter Martin Handley talked about it, BBC Arts have featured it on their homepage and various social media channels have shared the URL along with with specially created bespoke assets.
Symphinity will run for another month on BBC Taster and feedback so far has been very positive.
