Classic FM City Music Guide: NEW YORK

Take a classical musical tour of New York. A digital album featuring the pieces of music that are strongly associated with the Big Apple.

There’s nothing like a trip to the ‘Big Apple’ – but did you know just how important a contribution New York has made to the history of classical music? Classic FM’s new album reveals all. Specially designed for tablets, it’s the ideal travel companion and can also be enjoyed on a home computer or smart phone.


Compared to London, Paris and Rome, New York was a late starter on the musical scene but it caught up in breath-taking style in the twentieth century. Our digital map and booklet of informative notes will tell you all about New York’s links to favourites such as Gershwin’s Rhapsody in Blue and lesser-known works such as the only opera by ragtime composer Scott Joplin.


Classic FM’s City Music Guide to New York is available exclusively on iTunes. See Full track list and download here >
