Chimes of Bavaria
This wind chime is tuned to the joyful tones of the alphorn melody from the finale of Johannes Brahms' Symphony No 1 in C minor.
The German-born Brahms spent 15 years writing this piece, which he completed in 1876. A land of rolling hills, pine forests, charming alpine villages and sparkling lakes, Bavaria lies at the heart of Europe. Here, the Germans brew a rich, creamy-tasting beer called Weizenbier, or wheat beer. In accordance with the German Purity Law of 1516, it is made using only water, malt, hops and yeast for the very finest quality and flavor. We adhere to a similar philosophy and tune our Woodstock Chimes using pure musical intervals for the most beautiful sound. Reflecting the fields of Bavaria, this windchime features a wheat image burned into the wood of the windcatcher.
