Spring means fresh flowers, new blooms and represents a new beginning. Not just in the natural world, but for many people in the UK today the glorious sunshine really does put a spring in your step and give you an excuse to get outside.
From the first snowdrops and daffodils to primroses and hellebores, spring flowers are used by gardeners as a ‘spring marker’ to count down the days until temperatures increase again and we can spend more time in our gardens.
Music for Spring
Above is our offering for today – rather predictably perhaps, Here Comes the Sun by The Beatles. This is a particularly popular song with brides too and we have played this for many a wedding. With the weather improving we are expecting it to feature at more weddings in the coming months.

When it comes to classical music representing Spring, the most obvious choice is ‘Spring’ from Vivaldi’s Four Seasons.
In Vivaldi’s The Four Seasons, ‘Spring’ is joyful, energetic and optimistic. The famous opening movement – full of imitations of birdsong, murmuring brooks, and soft breezes – gives way to a sleepier Largo, in which a goat-herd sleeps next to his faithful dog, represented by a barking viola line, before the final rustic dance of nymphs and shepherds leads the concerto to a harrumphing conclusion.
Whether you are getting married this Spring, later in the year or in 2023 and beyond, JAM Duo would love to hear from you with regards to your music choices.
Our Duo (Cello and Piano) specialises in covers of popular songs but we also play a wide range of classical favourites and jazz standards. No matter what your musical taste, JAM Duo can provide beautiful music for your wedding day.
