We'll hear the poetry and identify the musical elements that create Antonio Vivaldi's iconic representation of winter.

This week on IPR's Kids Commute, we're listening to "Winter" by Antonio Vivaldi. The Italian composer wrote a set of sonnets for all four seasons, then created music that matches them perfectly.

Meet all the "characters" in Vivaldi's "Winter" and hear the iconic music this week on Kids Commute! Tune in Monday through Friday at 7:40 and 3:20, or listen any time at the links below.

This will be a short Kids Commute week, with episodes on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday. We'll return Monday, November 28th.
