Three attractive duets that describe the many sides of winter. Japanese composer Naoko Ikeda intends them to be miniature “songs without words.” Powder Snow, a quick graceful study, expresses the inital pleasure one feels when seeing the ground covered by fresh gleaming white snow. The Glacial Mermaid explores winter's fairy-tale appeal, and Silent Light is a sweet andantino that conjures up the soft sparkling lights that often appear at Christmas.
