Ah, Spring

The last couple of days replete with sunshine and warmer temperatures have made the promise of spring all the more legit. Stay up late tonight (12:05am, Thursday) for another blast of spring - our weekly Euro-Classic comes from Luxembourg (where, appropriately, it was also supposed to be sunny and around 40-degrees all this week!). In a performance recorded live a year ago, the Luxembourgh Philharmonic Orchestra plays Claude Debussy's Spring Symphonic Suite (Printemps) - a work where, for the first time, the term impressionism was applied.
