From Vivaldi’s Four Seasons to Tchaikovsky’s enchanting ballets, we’ve gathered together the very best music inspired by the coldest season of the year. So pull your chair up to that open fire and enjoy our wintery gallery.
There’s nothing cosy about Schubert’s song cycle ‘Winterreise’ (Winter Journey). The protagonist is leaving his home because the girl he hoped to marry has rejected him.

He walks into the landscape with him.
