Christian August Sinding (11 January 1856 – 3 December 1941) was a Norwegian composer. He is known for his lyrical works for piano, such as Frühlingsrauschen (Rustle of Spring, 1896). He was often compared to Edvard Grieg and regarded as his successor.
Frühlingsrauschen, Op. 32, No. 3 (Rustle of Spring) is a solo piano piece written by Christian Sinding in 1896. It is Sinding’s most popular piece of music; indeed, it is the only piece of his that most musicians could name. It is written in Salon style as a piece meant for entertainment. It was very popular in the United States.
The score has some technically challenging sections, but is, for the most part, easier to play than it sounds, with most of the rapidity made up of simply arpeggiated passages.
