Spring music

Officially it's spring, but with the weather still feeling like winter it's difficult to tell. So I've been listening to music that does remind me of spring because we need to get our sunshine from somewhere. Here are a few of my favourites (some of these are overtly related to spring, some much less so, but I hope you enjoy all of them nonetheless): 

Claude Debussy - "Rondes des Printemps" from Images

Igor Stravinsky - "Spring Rounds" from The Rite of Spring

Dmitri Shostakovich - "Folk Feast" from The Gadfly

Nikolai Rimsky-Korsakov - Easter Festival Overture

Mieczyslaw Weinberg - I Allegro risoluto and II Lento from Sinfonietta No.1

John Adams - The Chairman Dances
