In these ten short pieces are reflected some of the varied and beautiful aspects of nature. Rustling wind, stirring life, running stream and glowing sky all lend from their rich treasuries gems of thought and inspiration. Although, in order of difficulty, ‘River and Rainbow’ precedes ‘Forest Fantasies’ a true interpretation demands appropriate tonal colouring and free play of the imagination.
