Chord of the Week

Chord of the Week returned for its sixth series this summer as part of BBC 2 Television’s PromsExtra.


Here are a few samples from previous years.

The onomatopoeia of ‘Oh what a beautiful yawning.’, all seven notes of the scale at once, in Beethoven 9. Followed by Holst, spelling his own name, the dance songs of Frank Sinatra, Britten on the beach at Aldeburgh, Tchaikovsky running in the wrong direction, and Schubert grappling with technology.
