Autumn moods

The seasons and the metamorphosis of nature throughout the year have long inspired composers. Autumn is no exception. Music of mellow hues reflects its dappled colours and muted light, while other works catch the bustle of the late harvest or that special mood of cosiness mixed with melancholy – feelings evoked by the falling of leaves, the arrival of the cold and the lighting of long-dormant fires. This playlist mixes works designed to explicitly evoke autumn with those – mellow in colour and mood – that reflect autumnal feelings.
