  1. The violinist upstairs is playing Beethoven’s Fifth (“Spring”) Sonata. Her neighbor is listening to “Spring” from Vivaldi’s Four Seasons. Downstairs it is Stravinsky’s “Rite of Spring”. There seems to be a theme going on there!


      • Cannot recall this at the moment, but i wouldn’t be surprised if it is something springy as well, though i don’t remember such tune either in Schumann’s Spring Symphony or in Copland’s Appalachian Spring. Meanwhile, the three birds are all in perfect harmony with their variations of the c-major chord.
