Music inspired by nature

music nature

When you find yourself yearning for the sounds of nature but don’t have the time or opportunity to get out there, then you could find solace in harmonies inspired by nature instead. Here are just a few:

  • Morning Mood
    Start your day the Edvard Grieg way as birds welcome the dawn in this piece from Peer Gynt.
  • The flight of the bumblebee
    Sit back and relax as you picture the lively journey of Nikolai Rimsky-Korsakov’s famous insect.
  • Pastoral symphony
    Wander along Beethoven’s brook surrounded by bird calls, and stand in the midst of a storm, with thunder, lightning, wind and all.
  • La mer
    Dive into Debussy’s powerful and evocative depiction of Poseidon and Neptune’s realm.
