Classical Pacific: Thursday, February 22, 2018: The Great Outdoors
One of the primary inspirations for composers has always been nature, from favorite places to seasons to flora and fauna. Today, I'm playing you a very small sample of music from our library inspired by nature, from the familiar to the possibly esoteric. You'll hear the music of Vivaldi, Respighi, Hovhannes, Borodin, Rimsky-Korsakov, Britten, Holst, Mendelssohn, Fauré, Bax, Debussy and Keola Beamer.
