Sad Flower

Those of a certain age might recall this beautiful short film shown on Sesame Street years and years ago. The music is "Largo,'" from Concerto for Lute in D Major, RV 93 by Antonio Vivaldi, one of the most poignant compositions from the Baroque era. In the modern era, it's often played on guitar as in the film above. To hear a longer arrangement, see this wonderful performance by Boris Bj√∂rn Bagger.
