Summer in the Park, the fourth release in EMI Classics’ bestselling In the Park series, offers a collection of timeless recordings that celebrate the sounds of those hot summer days and cool summer nights.

Opening with the majesty of Grofé’s Grand Canyon Suite, the collection then takes the listener on a summer day’s journey filled with the lazily-drifting rhythms of Debussy’s En Bateau, the elegance of Saint-Saëns’ The Swan, the skittering playfulness of Mussorgsky’s Ballet of the Unhatched Chicks, before ending with serene stillness of Arvo Pärt’s extraordinary Spiegel im Spiegel.
