My classical romance: the most passionate playlist for Valentine's Day
'Love is a rebellious bird,' sang Maria Callas in Carmen, and the iconic diva knew better than most.
With love, lust and everything in between inspiring all the greatest composers to create eternal masterpieces, classical music is where it's at for a smoldering Valentine's Day rendezvous.
Topsify Classical has just the playlist for a romantic evening in, with the likes of Philippe Jaroussky and Sumi Jo to serenade you: from Puccini love duets sung by husband-and-wife opera stars Stephen Costello and Ailyn Pérez, Massenet's impassioned Méditation with violinist Maxim Vengerov, Wagner's yearning Tristan und Isolde prelude, and of course, 'L'amour est un oiseau rebelle', unforgettably sung by La Divina.
Made with love for classical music lovers. Enjoy.
