French-inspired work describes the magic of
a winter scene, where snow is quietly falling
and icicles are forming on trees. The beautiful
melody begins in the violins with the rest
of the ensemble playing pizzicato in
a supportive role. As the entire ensemble
moves to the bow, the melodic line continues
to grow until the entire ensemble soars in
a magical climactic moment before the tension
releases and the group fades to a single note.
Absolutely gorgeous and very accessible.
