Masters of Classical Music (10 x diverse min. HD)

Music is a language of emotions that needs no words and is understood by everyone. The poet Rainer Maria Rilke called it “language where languages end”, and the violinist Yehudi Menuhin once said: “Music speaks for itself – if we give it a chance.”

In the series Masters of Classical Music , European music from all periods is given a chance: From Baroque and Rococo to Classical and Romantic and beyond. The music is interpreted by outstanding orchestras and soloists from all over the world. Conductors include such eminent artists as Claudio Abbado, Daniel Barenboim, Pierre Boulez and Sir Simon Rattle.
