Sounds of Nature
Whether it is wind, birdsong, thunder, or the gently lapping ocean, the music of the natural world is a primal force that can awe, inspire, influence our moods, and improve our health. Many of the world’s greatest composers, from Beethoven and Mahler to Vivaldi and Rachmaninoff, took their inspiration from nature and recreated it to bring us closer to the seas, mountains, forests, and galaxies in all their cosmic power. Mixing performance, scholarship, and her renowned wit, concert pianist Rachel Franklin offers a music-infused presentation to help us hear how nature is represented in classical masterworks.
