Description

Written for the CD of Butler's music from NMC with the Schubert Ensemble, American Rounds, this tiny, delicate piece has something of the Debussyian prelude about it. It deftly deals with that familiar theme of snow, not rising above a piano dynamic throughout. Butler effectively utilises the upper registers of the instruments to depict the lightness of falling snow and contrasts this with bass notes in the piano, no doubt alluding to the depths that snow can conceal.show more
