This piece's title conjures up images of a beautiful young fawn, illuminated by early morning sunlight in a fog-filled meadow. Composer Keiko Yamada has a gift for writing heartfelt music with blossoming harmonic perspective. This piece is a different approach from her Japanese musical roots, but the piece still has all of the beauty that her pieces have become known for. A gorgeous addition to the repertoire and an excellent piece to teach musicality and phrasing.
