The young women is standing yer back to us, so we can`t see her face, but we can guess that she is very beautiful and romantic. I think, she is walking near her house , which we can see at the distance. There are soft and light colours in the colours in the picture. The artist wanted to create a mysterious picture, so that everyone sees it in a different way. This painting seemed very romantic and interesting for me. Алайская Валерия

Spring reviews of paintings Picture “Rooks have arrived”(“Grachi prileteli”) A. K. Savrasov is written in 1871. It’s a small picture very light in colour. A picture shows the beginning of spring in the Kostroma province. We see in the foreground curve birches and dirty thawed snow, on the right we see the pool, the is church with bell tower in the middle. Though the clouds are high in the sky, they are grey and it seems it will be snowing. The rooks’ nests are uncomfortable and disarranged. But the impression from the picture isn’t sad. The snow is painted in the most gentle shades: lilac, blue, yellow, brown, pink. The sky is reflected in a pool, birches are pulled upwards, and it as though expands space of a picture. Looking at the picture and you’re sure that spring is coming and nature is amazing, beautiful and wonderful in all seasons. Беньковский Константин
Spring reviews of musical illustration to narrative of A.S.Pushkin "Snowstorm"- "Spring" I have heard about Sviridov and this name is Familiar to me, but I have never listened to this music. I prefer listening to Mozart, Strauss, Vivaldi, etc. My first meeting to Sviridov’s music was a composer of unusual genius. To many people his talent is an enigma. This work of music art-I mean «snow-strom»-was very short-just a few minutes. These minutes were more than anough to turn over my imagination about Sviridov’s. It was full of colours and tints. This music is tuneful and appealing. You can clearly see and image seasons (late autumn, early spring). It was soft and fascinating, romantic and amazing. This music toucher my heart and mind. It made me think of other languages to describe man’s.Колодяжный Александр This music is tuneful and breathtaking. While we were listening to this melody really best happy. This melody has a mistery. For different people it means different things. I faced my dreams when of was listening to it. I got pleasure out this music. It is very romantic . I think the author was an amazing genius. I like it very much and of want to listen it one more time. Буданова Надежда The music astonishes by it’s originality and depth. It is really touching and eloquent, at the same time it is soft and romantic. While listening to the music I imagined some spring pictures. It is morning sunrise. Fresh green meadows are still covered with snow. On the thin bichen’s turgs tender leaves are blossoming out. The birds are singing. Brooks and thaw are clinking. There are a lot of spring flowers on the hill’s slopes. And some small fluffy pink clouds are on the azure sky. This music is very tuneful and appealing. Лудина Анна
What is spring for you? For me spring is like a bell which awarness us from cold and dark winter. When I think about spring I usually imagine warm beams of the sun, amusing and ringing streamlets? Fresh green grass and of cause first leaves and flowers. In spring I prefer to walk a lot. Have fun and I Usually in good mood. But studying at school in spring is very difficult, because the weather is so amazing and I want to be outside! But the best thing is that after spring summer coms and it`s great!!!Mogutova Julia 9 “B”

Spring months: March April May
March our translations of poem Пусть будет тёплый дождь и гром,Пусть будет пение птиц!Пускай снежинок сгинет сонм,Как горе с ваших лиц!Пусть дует ветер: на земле распустятся цветы.Пусть в дом ко мне ворвётся вновьПьянящий свет весны.Пусть он перевернёт столыИ распахнёт окно,Пусть он ворвётся в душу мне,Что спит уже давно...Потянет сильно за рукавИ, вытолкнув за дверь,Заставит воздухом дышать Весенних чистых дней. Лудина Анна To the thawing windCome with rain, O loud Southwester!Bring the singer, bring the nester;Give the buried flower a dream;Make the settled snow-bank steam;Find the brown beneath the white;But whate'er you do to-night,Bathe my window, make it flow,Melt it as the ice will go;Burst into my narrow stall;Swing the picture on the wall;Run the rattling pages o'er;Scatter poems on the floor;Turn the poet out the door.Robert Frost Южный ветер, приходи!Птиц с собою приводи;Чтоб сугробы воспарили,Чтоб все цветы ожили;Земля, ты, освободи;Будешь вечером в пути,-Дождь пускай ко мне придётИ стекла растопит лёд;В келью тесную ворвись,Раскачай картину; ввысьБрось, страницы пролистав,Расшвыряй стихи; отправьЗа порог поэта в явь.Могутова Юлия
March reviews of musical illustration Peter Tchaikovsky Peter Tchaikovsky “The song of the skylark” MarchThe skylark is a little bird, which Russian people assotiate with the beginning of spring, the a wakness of nature from winter sleeping. Ther are two music themes in the play: melodious lyrical with chord accompainment and the second, the same, but with flight and wide breathing. The charm of the play is in changing of mood from dreaming, sad light. Both themes remind the trills of the skylark.
April our translation of poem April's CharmsWhen April scatters charms of primrose goldAmong the copper leaves in thickets old,And singing skylarks from the meadows rise,To twinkle like black stars in sunny skies;When I can hear the small woodpecker ringTime on a tree for all the birds that sing;And hear the pleasant cuckoo, loud and long The simple bird that thinks two notes a song. William Henry Davies Очарование АпреляАпрель когда рассеет первоцвета золотого обоняния,Тогда средь медных листьев в старых чащахВзойдут луга от жаворонков пения,Мерцающих, подобно чёрным звёздам, под солнцем, в небесах;Когда могу услышать маленького дятла звонко,То время на ветвях для птиц, чтоб спеть.Услышать кукушку громко, звонко.Простая птица, которая поёт песню из двух нот. Беньковский Константин
April reviews of musical illustration Peter Tchaikovsky“The snowdrop” AprilSnowdrops are the plants which appear after melting of the snow. The flowers are very touching. They are blue and white. Russian people like snowdrops. They are the symbol of a new life. A lot of poems of Russian poets are devoted to this flower. The musical play “The snowdrop” based on waltz rythm, flight of fancy. We hear the emotion of soul which are coming when you admire the spring nature,and your emotions are felt with happiness, hope and expecting. The musical play is devided in two parts. The first and the third are repeated each other. In the second part there isn`t any great contrasts. I think, this is the changing of the mood, nuances of the same feeling.
May our translations of poem May! Queen of blossoms,And fulfilling flowers,With what pretty musicShall we charm the hours?Wilt thou have pipe and reed,Blown in the open mead?Or to the lute give heed In the green bowers? Lord Edward Thurlow Май! Король цветов И бутонов нежныхОгласил он вновьМузыкой надеждыСлышали ли ВыТруб победных грохот?Или, может быть, свирели скромной шёпот?Но...Зазвенели молния,Разогнала лень,И вот-вот ворвётся К нам в беседке тень! Буданова Надежда Май! Король цветения,Весны и вдохновения!Звучит симфония обонянияВ часы весеннего очарования...То ли это звук свирелиСредь медовых облаковИли может лютни трелиМеж задумчивых лесов? Могутова Юлия
May reviews of musical illustration Peter Tchaikovsky “White nights” MayWhite nights are the nights in May, when they are as light as days. White nights in St.Petersburg are romantic nights with walking and singing. We can find the image of white nights in St.Petersburg in the paintings of Russian artists and in poems of Russian poets. The music makes out mood change, sad thinking is changed by sweet admiration of soul. The composition “White nights” consists of two parts: the prelude and the conclusion and they shows us the image of white nights. They remind us about the silence of the nigh, about loneless, about dreams and happiness. The second part is impetuous and passionate.
