"Some composers mix colourful cocktails", said Jean Sibelius. "I offer pure, cool water". Surely there's no piece of music that's purer or more invigorating than his great Fifth Symphony. The symphony was commissioned by the government of Finland, one of the chilliest places on earth. Its second movement of this piece features the crisply cool sound of the flute over pizzicato strings with chirping woodwinds giving it a cheerful feel. The third movement is said to be inspired by swan-calls with the horns replicating the sound. In the heat of summer, take a sip of cool water with some icy classics by Sibelius.
