Classical Encounters

About this playlist

What happens when a musician from one of the biggest bands in the world collaborates with an iconic Polish modernist composer? You may know Jonny Greenwood as the guitarist of Radiohead, but in recent years he's produced more and more of his music in the form of orchestral composition and in 2011 he began a fruitful collaboration with the composer Krzysztof Penderecki.

As we catch up to the present day, our whistle stop tour through music history almost over, we look at what classical music in the 21st century sounds like and how the lines betweeen genres continue to blur and bend.
