One of my favorite melodies, rediscovered

There are about a dozen melodies that I find myself humming and whistling without realizing it. One is “Yellow Submarine.” Another begins at about 2:20 in Adams’ “On the Dominant Divide.”

Another is one that I’ve been humming for years but couldn’t remember where I had heard it.

Well, today, I finally stumbled into that melody once again! It turns out it’s the melody that begins at about 1:09 into the 3rd movement of Sibelius’ 5th symphony.

Ahhhhhhhh. So good.

    Thank you. I’ve been looking for that sibelius for years. I remember one unprofitable evening listening to everything I could find by Shostakovich in an attempt to find it.
