Cue Sheet entry


The first day of spring this year is Tuesday, March 20, and spring is clearly the most popular season among classical composers. For summer, autumn and winter I can drop relevant pieces onto the schedule here and there, but for spring there's enough music for a full day of programming.

We'll launch the season between 6 and 7 a.m. with some lesser-known short items, i addition to the popular On Hearing the First Cuckoo in Spring by Delius. Vivaldi's "Spring" Concerto will blossom shortly before the 8:01 news, and the day will continue with the expected spring works by Stravinsky, Copland, Beethoven, Strauss and Schumann--and a lot of unexpected music, as well. You can inspect the full schedule here.
