Another month has passed, which means it’s time for our round-up post of the remaining May playlist pieces.
Catch up on all the May lessons with these links:
- The Lark Ascending // Vaughan Williams
- Symphony #5 // Beethoven
- Songs My Mother Taught Me // Dvořák
- The Cuckoo and Aviary // Saint-Saëns
- Pavane in F# Minor // Fauré
- Pomp and Circumstance // Elgar
- Adagio for Strings // Barber
Waltz of the Flowers // Tchaikovsky
Tchaikovsky’s Waltz of the Flowers is from The Nutcracker, which is way more associated with Christmas than springtime. But The Nutcracker is loaded with incredible music, and we won’t have time for all of it in December. So I plucked the flower piece out for this month. #seewhatididthere?
Spring Song // Mendelssohn
Felix Mendelssohn has a funny little collection of music called Songs Without Words and his Spring Song is one of the most recognizable. It’s a light little tune, perfect for springtime.
I’ll be back Thursday with our Summer playlist! I am combining June and July for a combined list of classical music summer favorites. See you then!
