Song of the Week

I am not sure we have ever selected a classical piece for Song of the Week. However, Beethoven's 6th symphony seems to be an exercise in being present. Each movement is a present moment distinct in its sounds, moods, and gifts to the listerner. The composer uses recurring melodic themes to convey the sense of being surrounded by one beautiful impression after another.
