While The Splendid Table focuses on making great food for Thanksgiving and the holiday season, we also know that good music makes any gathering that much more festive. With that spirit in mind, our friends at YourClassical® created a playlist for you to enjoy in the kitchen, around the dinner table, or by the fireplace with your family and friends. Not your holiday standards, these classical tunes set a lovely backdrop for any occasion. Below, you'll find 12 classical pieces complete with composer and performance information.
