Clemency Burton-Hill makes classical music absolutely accessible, magical and medicinal. Another Year of Wonder is, indeed, another wonder
Clemmie is single-handedly the reason I have multiple classical music playlists, having always assumed that it wasn't for me. In Clemmie's world, everyone is invited to the classical party and that's what makes her books so beautiful and her words so welcoming. Clemmie's recommendations have broadened my mind, sharpened my imagination, tugged on my heartstrings and given me a song for every mood. Read this book and let yourself float away for a moment or two. What a gift.
Another Year of Wonder is a gorgeous compendium of a piece of classical music for every day of the year. The perfect start to 2022, which we all hope will be brighter than the last two.
Clemmie writes about each piece of music with such energy and passion that you can't help but immediately want to stop what you're doing and seek it out. It's a fascinating book which I hope many will enjoy.
