Go for gold! The best Olympic music
It’s not often a singer will be asked to run 5,000 metres over the course of an opera performance but Emily Howard’s Zátopek! does just that. Composed as part of the 2012 Cultural Olympiad, the 12 minute work sets the story of Czech runner Emil Zátopek’s gold-medal winning race, in almost real time.
