If you are in need of a little bit of escapism today, I think today's piece with be just the ticket.

Anne Dudley composed this stunning Poldark Prelude especially for Chinese superstar pianist Lang Lang, who is the soloist on this recording.

I invite you to close your eyes as you listen and think of the staggering natural beauty of the Cornish coast or indeed any beautiful coastline you love.

If you enjoy this piece I really recommend listening to the whole album (click here to do so), Anne Dudley's score for Poldark is magical and captures the raw beauty of the landscape and story perfectly.

with love,
