Cranberry Isles Suite
Inspired by the beauty of the Cranberry Isles in Maine, USA, the three movements to this suite are: I. Allegro Agitato, "Wind And Wave" - II. Amabile Moderato, "Cranberry Island" - III Andante Dolcissimo, "Red House".
A fantasy piece, a feeling of losing one's way but an even stronger feeling of hope and eventually, light and hope realized. Hopestone.
A lighter, "pop" work with new-age stylings; a dedication of the excitement of the sea.
Advent and Christmas arrangements and fantasias.
A meditation on the fading of autumn into winter.
