Reflections on Art and Life
I have finished writing a Woodwind Quintet entitled “Snow Angels”. It was inspired by a breeze of fresh air at the end of a long and humid summer in East Tennessee. As the mornings and evenings became cooler, and the change of seasons was at hand, I was overcome by the memories of snowy winters in my native Poland. I remembered being pulled in a sled by my parents, the taste and smell of snow, and the simplicity of a child’s joy and wonderment. I dedicate this piece to all of my Northern Friends who have been transplanted to the South and who miss true winter. Learn more.
