Happy Mother's Day!
Track 1 : Dvořák’s “Songs My Mother Taught Me”
The melancholic folk melody by Czech composer Antonín Leopold Dvořák is part of his Gypsy song collection. Short and sweet, and it celebrates family tradition by telling the tale of a woman passing down songs from her childhood to her own children. An instant hit in its time, “Songs My Mother Taught Me” is still one of Dvořák’s best known melodies.
Track 2 : Delibes’ “Flower Duet”
With petal-soft melodies, Léo Delibes’ “Flower Duet” is an aural bouquet of flowers for your mother. A duet from Delibes’ opera Lakmé, it celebrates friendship and flowers with upbeat musicality.
Track 3 : Brahms’ “Lullaby”
While Johannes Brahms “Lullaby” isn’t written for mothers in particular, they will cherish this melody in their hearts, as this beautiful piece of music is one of the most recognizable lullabies; sung to lull babies to sleep since its first performance in Vienna, 1869.
