InstrumentalRecordsThis selection of James Rhodes' favourite tracks (taken from his earlier Signum albums) makes for a perfect introduction to this most intriguing of artists, as well as presenting glorious music by Bach, Chopin and others.

The most fun part of my job is figuring out what to play live. There’s an infinite choice of immense, immortal music and I always try and design concert programmes a bit like a setlist for the audience.

For this compilation (of my personal recordings from the last six years) I wanted to carry on in that vein and so I’ve made it a mix tape—these are the pieces that come up in my head unwarranted at 4am to get me through another rotten night of insomnia. These are the ones that always give me hope and a reason to hang on in there—because if music like this can exist then there is simply no question that the good outweighs the bad. They are my inside tracks.
