The Winter Connection

Winter in New York City's Central Park

 

It may be the coldest season of the year, when days are shortest and nights are longest, but winter is not without its charms.

Snow, ice and fog have their own beauty, and the season also brings people indoors, to sit by a warm fire, or visit with family and friends.

In this hour, winter-inspired music by Vivaldi, Mozart, Tchaikovsky, Delius, Prokofiev, and more.
