“Spring work is going on with joyful enthusiasm.” – John Muir

It is already a week after the beginning of the Equinox.  Spring is always a refreshing season after a chilly winter, showing vigorous signs of awakening and new life in the vicinity.  Welcoming the arrival of Spring, this playful music piece of Beethoven just serves as a foil to add zest to the surrounding atmosphere.  This duo of violin and piano, with skillful collaboration by high-caliber performers, has been a pair of wonderful match.  In contrast to other extremely dramatic compositions, this time Beethoven demonstrates his gifted mastery of inventiveness and sense of amuse.  Hopeful, energetic, light-heartening are more to describe the liveliness of this first movement of Spring Sonata.  Bursting with moments of humor and fun, let’s enjoy this wondrous music.  May this season also reassure you with the music of laughter, the warmth of friendship and love. ♦
