Art over the centuries has explored the closeness of humankind to the natural world. During the 17th and 18th centuries, composers gleefully replicated the actual sounds made by animals. In the Romantic and modern eras, the personalities of wild creatures were portrayed just as skillfully. With good cheer, CMS sends listeners towards the summer with the marvelous noises of nature.
