Program Note

"Here in Michigan, springtime is not only the time for gentle zephyrs, but also for thundershowers, hail, and tornados. This work of youthful exhuberance embraces them all as opportunities for a show of keyboard virtuousity.

"In 1992, the Ferruccio Busoni Memorial Society awarded this work with highest honors in a composition contest."

--Matthew H. Fields
