5 short movements: Last Frost | Spring Shows Her Colors | Summer Serenade | Prayer for Thanksgiving | Sleigh Ride!
This five-movement suite weaves a tapestry of moods as it traces the changes of the seasons. High tremolos signal winter's end in “Last Frost,” which is followed by the joyful “Spring Shows Her Colors.” “Summer Serenade” is gently playful, and autumn is depicted by the richly-harmonic “Prayer for Thanksgiving.” Metric changes characterize the exhilarating “Sleigh Ride!” which brings the suite to a rousing close.
