I was listening to the first movement of Symphony No.6
during the 'milder' sections of our weekend storm. Frankly, this is music made for listening to at the end of a pier during a storm like the one we had the other week!
The peculiar percussion sounds are obviously meant to mimic the sounds of roofs coming off during a hurricane, or the pounding of raindrops. I just don't see the point of playing this on a nice day.
It does make me want to go to the beach though,... it does seem specifically 'ocean' music, as opposed to the 'jungle' music of the 7th. Yea, I'd play this on a nice day at the beach,... with a nice breeze to cut all this humidity,... oh,... oh yes, Norgard
,... anyway, yes, weather music!
