The Summer Connection

Summer in Tuscany

 

In warmer climates, summer is a time to slow down, stay in the shade, and beat the heat.

But in northern latitudes, it’s a welcome relief from cold weather—a season for spending time out of doors and … often celebrating into the night.

In this hour, music that fits both summertime scenarios—from Vivaldi and Haydn to Glazunov and Gershwin.
