Mother’s Day is always a very special day on ABC Classic, offering a chance for listeners to say ‘Thank you’ and reach out with love to their mums on the radio through music. Out of the hundreds of music requests that pour in every year come Mother’s Day morning, ABC Classic has now picked out over two hours of listener favourites for this 2CD collection of musical hugs.

From the gentle beauty of Debussy’s Clair de lune and the Elena Kats-Chernin’s Eliza Aria, to the huge warm embrace of the Pearl Fishers Duet and the Adagio from Spartacus, Offenbach’s joyous Can-Can, Vivaldi’s smiling music for Spring, Mahler’s thoughtful Adagietto and Bernstein kicking up his heels with the overture to Candide – this is music to share and treasure.

Featuring performances by Teddy Tahu Rhodes and David Hobson, Roger Woodward and Tamara-Anna Cislowska, Karin Schaupp, Jane Sheldon, Nicole Car, the Australian Brandenburg Orchestra, Australian Chamber Orchestra, Orchestra of the Antipodes, the Sydney, Tasmanian, West Australian and Queensland Symphony Orchestras and many more.
