This quiet contemporary composition is music portraying the quietness that comes as winter begins to lose its icy grip on the land. It is based on a simple, repetitive harmonic progression and clear melody that move through a few key changes and gradually build to a soft section that is like the melting snow. It is deceptively simple, and requires a very precise touch to emote the musical scenery.
Winter’s Thaw is one of 11 tracks recorded by myself on the 2011 CD, “Piano Songs,” available on CDBaby, Amazon and iTunes.
