Most people only know Mendelssohn’s Spring Song from its frequent use in old cartoons, but it deserves a serious listen now and then.
In the interests of full disclosure, the music sheet shown here is not from that work, but rather from the viola part for Sibelius’ Finlandia which our local orchestra played this spring. This is the syncopated part near the end, which I love.
The flowers are Dame’s Rocket (with some color adjustment) which once again came and volunteered in my garden, much to my delight. Weed? Hah! I don’t think so.
