In music full of vitality, colour and humour, Haydn vividly evokes the seasonal changes both in nature and village life – brilliantly depicting the villagers as they flee from summer storms, hunt, dance and drink (excessively!) at harvest time, spin and tell stories by the fire in the desolation of winter.
