    Four Little Dream Songs

    We Japanese people love nature, we learn from it and we live with it knowing perhaps his menacing force. Stations in Japan are very marked. Especially spring and autumn that are longer than in Europe, and we enjoy them as very pleasant seasons. I have selected these pieces to convey that feeling. As shown in the title of each piece, in them there are expressed impressions of the 4 seasons in Japan , but it can also be interpreted in a loving way. List of songs:  [1] Dream Song on May [2] Distorted Waltz on August [3] Dream Song on November [4] Lullaby More information here Also available in iTunes
