Symphony No. 6 (First Movement)
Classical // By AJ / 23 August, 2012
Probably the classiest tune we’ve ever had on either/or, though its discovery did come from an old Simpsons episode. Par for course for us! This is still a monumentally lovely piece, and one that’s perfectly matched to the scene they used it for on the show: an elaborate montage of the various children of Springfield switching off their TVs and rediscovering the outdoors. I’d show you the clip in question, but I’m certain that’d make me a filthy pirate. Instead, enjoy a live rendition by the Cleveland Institute of Music Orchestra. Skip to 2:35 for my favourite bit.
