Schumann’s Spring Symphony — No. 1 in B Flat Major

First Day of Spring 2015

 

It’s the first day of spring, but it’s cold, rainy, and gray here in the Washington, DC, area. The above graphic, today’s Google Doodle, really brightened  my spirit. Hats off to their art department. Great job, guys!

The first day of spring always makes me think of Schumann’s “Spring” Symphony. I don’t have it in my collection yet, but I first heard it in a college music appreciation class and never forgot it. In this video, I thoroughly enjoyed watching the musicians as they played. I could feel their enthusiasm, and how the mood of the music changed during the quieter parts. Enjoy!
