Note to You, A; Winter Dreams

01/03/1999

What is the sound of winter? When snow falls, it feels as though the world was wrapped in cotton wool. But then you hear the ice tinkling, the snow crunching. Virginia Eksin brings you winter sounds, as interpreted musically by Debussy, Tchaikovsky and Ravel in this very chilly edition of ANTY.
