Quiz: Which Spring-Themed Classical Music Piece Are You?
Monday, March 20, 2017
After a blustery storm and on-and-off cold weather, we haven’t quite been able to enjoy that extra hour of sunlight just yet. Whether it feels like it or not, Monday marks the first day of spring, so let's get a jump start on sharing the music inspired by this time of year.
Spring has always been the poet’s season — the tender buds and greenery have historically tickled the muse (and our noses). And spring has also been a source of inspiration for composers, too. The whole season is portrayed in pieces like "The Rite of Spring" and the Spring Sonata, and also its smaller elements, such as the flowers in Delibes's "Flower Duet" or the pastoral fields of Ralph Vaughan Williams' "Flos Campi."
Take our quiz to see which spring piece fits you best.
