Winter in New York City's Central Park
The opening of Tchaikovsky’s Symphony No. 1, “Winter Daydreams,” skillfully suggests the coldest season of the year, when days are shortest and nights are longest.
But winter is not without its charms.
Snow and ice have their own beauty, and the season often brings exceptionally clear weather, particularly at night.
It also brings people indoors, to sit by a warm fire, or to visit with family and friends.
In this hour, winter-inspired music by Vivaldi, Mozart, Tchaikovsky, Delius, Prokofiev, and more.
