Level of Difficulty: 3 out of 5

Three short but absolutely beautiful settings depicting scenes of nature painted with the composer’s beautiful melodic lines floating on rich, thick harmonies. The first, “Flowering Almond” is lush and peaceful. In “Quiet Rain”, you can hear the gentle falling of the rain through the hazy veiled skies while you are lulled into a state of peace and solitude. “Early Spring” actually depicts a scene of late February when icicles still hang from branches and lakes are still covered with ice. A chilling setting, yet beautiful. These three give the musicians a chance to really paint a picture through their music. I give this set five out of five stars.
