17. Mahler, Symphony No. 3
The flowery link here isn't in the title; it's in Mahler's precise notes written on the score for his lengthy Third Symphony. Clocking in at an impressive 90 minutes, each movement has a specific subtitle: What the Flowers in the Meadow Tell Me is the symphony's peaceful second movement.
