Jay’s previous episode was devoted to music of spring. As he points out, it’s still spring—and there’s a lot of spring music out there. So he goes a second round. This round serves up Schubert, Mahler, Copland, Rodgers & Hammerstein, and more. A colorful, happy bouquet.
Schumann, “Spring” Symphony
Mahler, “Der Trunkene im Frühling,” from “Das Lied von der Erde”
Copland, “Appalachian Spring”
Duke, “April in Paris,” Count Basie and His Orchestra
Rodgers & Hammerstein, “It Might As Well Be Spring”
