Classic for grace: which European anthem is the most beautiful?

Classic for grace: which European anthem is the most beautiful?

Who is behind the Eurovision hype and what does the Champions League anthem have to do with the coronation of King Charles.

It remains to be seen which songs will make it to the final of this year’s Song Contest – but one melody will certainly be heard: the tunes of the Eurovision fanfare, created by the almost forgotten Baroque composer Marc-Antoine Charpentier.

In this podcast episode, Katrin Neusmayer and Wilhelm Senkovic address several tunes that are emblematic of European cohesion. And not just for the May 13th Song Contest: If you listen carefully to King Charles’ coronation on May 6th, you can experience familiar-sounding sounds from entirely different major events. . .
