Program Notes

Frühlingsrauschen, Op. 32, No. 3 (Rustle of Spring) is a solo piano piece written by the Norwegian composer Christian Sinding (1856–1941) in 1896. It is Sinding's most popular piece of music. It is written in Salon style as a piece meant for entertainment. It was very popular in the United States.

Much of the piece is played with a rapid arpeggio in the right-hand piano part, while the left hand carries the melody. The work's title indicates that its sense of constant motion is symbolic of the excited restlessness of springtime.
