 A NICE SAMPLER  March 14, 2015 By Zita Carno (Tampa, FL) See All My Reviews "I guess Sibelius was thinking of spring when he wrote this piece---and so was I. I was thinking of "spring has sprung, the grass is riz" (as the old rhyme goes)---blue skies, comfortable temperatures, baseball season, all that goes with this freshest of seasons---as I listen and enjoy. And all the shorter tone poems and other delightful bits of Sibeliana to add to my growing collection. A nice sampler indeed, for this happy Sibelius camper. And by the way, I heard on my TV the Symphony #6 by the British composer Arnold Bax, and I got a kick out of how he paid homage to Sibelius by adding a phrase from Tapiola at the end of the last movement---I understand that the two were friends."
