Notes and Editorial Reviews
The garden is a magical place to spend a day, and this playlist of cultivated classical pieces is the perfect accompaniment to working amid the flowers and foliage. Hear the sun rise in Grieg’s exquisite Morning Mood from Peer Gynt, waltz among the flowers with Tchaikovsky and watch the sparkling Fountain Dance with Elgar before drifting into the Haze of Noon with Alwyn. In the afternoon, shelter from the shower with Debussy and listen to the Birds in the High Hall Garden, exquisitely brought to life by Julian Lloyd Webber, before Gibbs’ Dusk falls.
