DETAILS:

Winter Memories was conceived as a tone poem of one reflecting upon the joyous time that can be had during the winter. Opening with a brief ethereal statement of melodies, we are transported to the hillside of families playing in the snow – throwing snowballs, chasing one another, and building snowmen. In the middle of all of this frivolity, a sleigh sails across the snow only to return to the themes depicting snow-time fun. The entire image is concluded with a fanfare ending!
