Spring Set to Music

antonio_vivaldi_2Spring “Allegro” – Antonio Vivaldi

The festive Spring has arrived,
The birds celebrate her return with happy songs,
And the brooks of the gentle Zephyrs
With sweet murmurs flow, but,

The sky is covered in a dark mantle
And lightning and thunder announce a storm.
When quiet returns, the birds
Again take up their lovely songs.

 

 

In honor of the arrival of spring, I’m sharing one of Jonathan’s favorite pieces of music. It’s one of my favorites, too. Antonio Vivaldi wrote not only the music for “The Seasons”, but also a description of each.

As you listen to the music, listen, too, for the songs of the birds, the sound of the brooks and the breeze. Enjoy the beauties of spring set to music.

 “Spring” by Antonio Vivaldi, performed here by violinist Joshua Bell.
