What we’re listening to this week

This week the Encore office jukebox has been pumping out an eclectic range of musical delights.

Here’s a few tracks we’d recommend:


“Nothing beats a good bit of Scandinavian jazz to lighten the drudgery of the morning commute, and when it comes to scandijazz nothing beats Esbjörn.”

Esbjörn Svensson Trio In My Garage – Seven Days of Falling (2003)

James M

“The Tiny Desk concerts are some of the best live performances on YouTube, with Glaspar’s being a particular favourite that I keep coming back to. If you’re short on time, skip to 8:20 – ‘Alright, we’re gonna make something up literally right now… Who wants to start?’

Robert Glasper Experiment NPR Music Tiny Desk Concert (2014)


“One of my favourite pieces of music from one of my favourite composers. Named after a mnemonic for learning the planets, and written for a Pierrot ensemble. I listen to this a lot while working.”

David Lang My Very Empty Mouth


“Best played loudly, I just can’t get enough of the energy in this piece.”

Koreless TT/Love – TT (2015)

James K

“Schubert’s epic final piano sonata, played here to perfection by Brendel, is the perfect accompaniment to a good bit of Tuesday afternoon coding.”

Franz Schubert Piano Sonata No. 21 B flat major – Alfred Brendel (1828)

James McAulay

Encore Co-Founder & CEO. Cellist, pianist, singer and aspiring guitarist.
