Variations on a Theme: Summertime

Music for that free flow of summer, when adventure – or a nap – can happen at any moment. There’s music written by composers on Summer retreats, and music that evokes the sun-faded feeling. 

The playlist includes Gustav Mahler’s “Blumine” from his Symphony no. 1, written while on Summer Retreat. Edward Elgar wrote Salut d’Amour during a romantic summer and used it to propose to his beloved.
