Chopin is the composer of love – tender, soft, dreamy love that dwells in the senses after passing through the heart. The lilac, anemone and daffodil stir hearts that wait on the senses. Hear Chopin with Clematis ‘Perle d’Azur’, as well as Hydrangea macrophylla, ‘Uzu’ and ‘Madame Emile Mouillere’ .Somewhere between a whistle and a vocal is Eric Satie. You can hear his music there, hiding. Innovator of modern music and composer of some of its loveliest songs, he labored in the vineyards of provocative, humorous, and crystalline melodies. Clematis florida ‘Sieboldii’sings his praise.
Genius plays in the corners and on the margins. It visits us from another world and teaches us a new language. Stravinsky did both, turning the musical world upside down and pushing everyone forward. Agastache ‘Firebird’ and Eryngium amethystinium ‘Sapphire Blue’ keep his soul alive.
