What can we hear at 3-degrees Upstate NY?

Yeah, 3 degrees, and supposed to be -1 as the night moves along.

Time for Vivaldi's Four Seasons "Winter," I guess.

Lance this made me think of the painter kadinsky-it was freezing yesterdayin nyc but fortunately all the public transportation was working fine-the Q line into brooklyn did a fine job-unfortunately getting to secaucus had a 45 minute delay-a bad accident on the hackensack bridge-we were so close to our hotel but traffic was at a crawl.

How abut Vaughan-Williams's Sinfonia Antarctica?

There's nothing remarkable about it. All one has to do is hit the right keys at the right time and the instrument plays itself.
-- Johann Sebastian Bach

Haydn would work in The Seasons as would Vaughan Williams. But for winter, on a cold night we might also hear the following:

Schubert: Winterreise
Tchaikovsky: "Winter Dreams," Symphony No. 1
Raff: Symphony #11 "Winter"
Halley's Winter Dream
Dett: Tropic Winter
Dohnanyi: Winter Dances for Piano
Holst: Winter Idyll
Bax: Winter Legends for Piano & Orchestra
Grieg: The Long, Long Winter Night (piano)
Blackberry Winter (song)
Tchaikovsky: November (piano) from The Seasons
Sibelius: Winter Scene from Five Sketches
Purcell: Frost Song from King Arthur
Debussy: The Snow is Dancing (Children's Corner Suite)
Waldteufel: Skater's Waltz
Glazunov: Winter from The Seasons
J. Strauss; Winterlust Polka
Debussy: Footprints in the Snow (Preludes for Piano Book I)
Offenbach: Ballet of the Snowflakes (Le voyage dans la lune)
Rimsky-Korsakov: The Snow Maiden (Snegourachka)
T. Arne: Blow, Blow Thou Winter Wind
P. M. Davies: Symphony No. 8 (Antarctic Symphony)

I was being facetious about Wothe Vaughan-Williams.It's good to see so many serious suggestions,and none specially name like Tchaikovsky's Symphony No. 1 ("Winter Dreams").

Been a long time since I heard that one. For some reason, it didn't "take" to my brain. Maybe I should give it a second chance. I certainly have the recordings!
