Of all the subjects that have inspired composers to pen some of their finest works, love is the universal favourite. From the mediaeval songs of the Minnesingers to the contemporary easy-listening music scene, affairs of the heart have maintained their powerful presence in stage works, instrumental music and solo songs. Wherever you are, and whatever stirs your romantic embers, we hope you'll find something from the following selection to suit your fancy.

  LOVE AND PASSION IN MUSIC

Love is pervasive in music, as it is in life. In the first volume in this series of Love and Passion in Music, the focus falls on instrumental and orchestral music. Whether in a tone poem, symphonic movement, ballet or film, composers depict the passions of love through melodic beauty and sumptuous or refined instrumentation. The subject matter ranges from Orpheus to Dr Zhivago, from Spartacus to Cinderella, but the means remain the same: love depicted and evoked through pure music.
