This is my favourite piece of all. It gives me peace. It reminds me of romance.

I can see water imagery fluid, flowing, soothing and vibrant with life.

There are passages through slow streams to calm seas; there are also river bends and waterfalls; there are raindrops and trickle through forests; there are bouncing droplets and ripples; there are the spreading of ripples; there are reflections; there is stillness on top of a profound deep where currents keep moving on.

[A bit of a disclaimer: I am not professionally trained to listen to music with keen ears or to describe with accurate vocabularies. These little notes are based on experiences of listening to pieces that moved me, and playing some on the piano. I am, however, able to catch some fleeting imagery and feelings that I may not, and need not, make sense of. I am also aware that there are people gifted with this fascinating sensation of synesthesia, which I am unable to access. Let’s call it a celebration of music, and putting it into the foreground through words.]
