Here’s our top 5 classical works for Halloween. Some are well-known, others less so, but all evocative of spooks and goblins.
Tune in to The New Classical FM 96.3 and make us your Halloween soundtrack for handing out treats! We’ll be playing a few tunes throughout the day, but especially through the evening!
