What classical music is featured in 'Bridgerton'?
Of course, it wouldn't be a period drama without some actual classical music. So as not to disappoint classical music fans, the show's creators made sure there was some throughout the popular Netflix drama.
- Episode 4 - Lady Lady Trowbridge’s guests at her steamy soirée dance to the Waltz from Shostakovich’s Jazz Suite No. 2. Followed by the ‘Barcarolle’ from Offenbach’s 1881 opera The Tales of Hoffmann.
- Episode 5 - The queen's rage-filled reading scene is accompanied by Beethoven Symphony No. 5 and later one of his ‘Razumovsky’ string quartets is played at the wedding party.
- Episode 7 - The scene opens with Daphne playing the German composer’s fiery Piano Sonata in C, ‘Waldstein’.
- At the final rain-drenched ball you can hear an adaptation of the Gigue from Bach’s Cello Suite No. 6. The music is taken from the 2018 album Recomposed by Peter Gregson: Bach – The Cello Suites and if you're a fan of that music then the entire album is worth a stream.
- The last episode of Bridgerton features music from Recomposed by Max Richter: Vivaldi – The Four Seasons, interpretations on Vivaldi’s famous concertos.
