Summer is more of a feeling than a time of year. No matter where you are, these 5 beautiful contemporary pieces will remind you of summer.
My definition of summer heat is now ten degrees hotter and more bustled than I’ve ever known–I’ve gotten the most humid welcome to Asia.
I encourage you to pick one up on the piano and share with a friend to catch the end of the summer. Like a sunset, with more character.
Summer – Joe Hisaishi
Summer – Calvin Harris
Although I shy away from conventional ‘pop’ music, this one is interesting.
The Last Rose of Summer – Mendelssohn
A classic Mendelssohn piece, peaceful with dynamic moments.
Hummingbird – George Winston
Summertime – Gershwin
A mysterious, jazzy piece with classic Gershwin leaps in the left hand. If you don’t play this properly, you might be able to blame it on the size of your hands.
