February, the month of Valentine's Day. The perfect excuse to compile our monthly Kiosk Radio playlist with music full of love, longing and heartbreak.
With this fourth playlist, La Monnaie continues its collaboration with the online community radio station Kiosk Radio. This time we combined instrumental music, opera excerpts, but also choral and film music to address the most intense of all human emotions from all angles. Surrender to two hours of music full of seduction, beauty, passion and danger.
