These are four short movements (images) for piano trio. A listener, seated in a concert hall or church, may envision moments of light (sunlight pouring through the windows) and of shadow (trees blocking the sun). These contrasting qualities translate into music through open harmonies and buoyant rhythms (light) and nocturnal, "blues" chords (shadow).
This is gentle music -- both flowing and calm.
