Pic(k) of the Week: Winter Sky

Winter sky

A winter storm blows away in late afternoon.

Avondale Estates, Georgia, USA. 9 January 2024.


  • For brevity (and appropriateness) I embedded only Storm, the final movement of British composer Frank Bridge's 1911 tone poem, The Sea. For the peroration at the 20:20 mark, an oboist plays a brief, bittersweet tune, that could easily be an elegy to those lost in a storm. After a beat's pause, the full orchestra returns with a concluding, emphatic orchestral recapitulation (also brief) of the main theme. Resplendent!
