Join City of London Sinfonia and science communicator, climate physicist, and author Dr Simon Clark on a journey across the globe from pole to pole, taking in the freezing desolation of the tundra, the scorching heat of the desert, and the humid claustrophobia of the tropics. The soundtrack to your adventure will be a selection of classical pieces representing the cloud formations we encounter as we make our way from the Antarctica to the Arctic. Revisit old favourites such as Vivaldi’s Summer invoking the altocumulus castellanus – small individual fluffy clouds home in the tropics, which look cute but can warn of thunderstorms, with dynamic lightning.
