Lili Boulanger - D'un matin de printemps (Of a Spring Morning) (1918) Bartok - Concerto, Piano, No.3, BB 127 (1945) Beethoven - Symphony No.6, op.68, F major (Pastorale) (1808) This concert is largely associated with nature. D'un matin de printemps is concerned with spring and morning, and is decidedly French in its composition. It was one of the last completed works of Lili Boulanger who died at 24. The Bartok Piano Concerto, while not explicitly about nature, is light, airy, and utilizes Hungarian folk tunes. Beethoven named his sixth symphony the Pastorale, and it is the only symphony of his that is programmatic (music that exists to tell a narrative). The names of the individual movements are:

I - Awakening of cheerful feelings on arrival in the countryside

II - Scene by the brook

III - Merry gathering of country folk

IV - The Storm

V - Shepherd's song. Cheerful and thankful feelings after the storm
