This is a FORCES OF NATURE CD with Listener's Guide by IN CLASSICAL MOOD.
From a delightful dawn with a gentle breeze welcoming the day to a raging, awe-inspiring storm, extremes of nature are both powerful and intriguing, and sometimes even frightening. In this volume of In Classical Mood, the world's great composers capture the beguiling beauty and the terrible anger of Mother Nature. Mussorgsky, in St. John's Night on the Bare Mountain, and Stravinsky, in The Rite of Spring, explore supernatural mayhem, while Debussy, in LeVent dans la plaine, and Ravel, in Daphnis and Chloe, reflect on nature's calmer side in their soothing harmonies.
