[PLAYLIST] Music Inspired by Nature



On January 29, UMS will present the Hamburg Symphony Orchestra, who will perform French composer Olivier Messiaen’s Des canyons aux étoiles (From the Canyons to the Stars). Messiaen was commissioned by Alice Tully, the New York philanthropist most widely known for her contribution to Lincoln Center, to write a piece commemorating America’s bicentennial. From the Canyons to the Stars was inspired by the natural wonder Messiaen found in the landscapes of the American West.

We put together a playlist of other music we love which was inspired by nature. Take a listen.
