Fireworks and Bonfires by Catherine Wilson is mesmerizing and hypnotic at times, but also exudes an intensity that evokes roaring flames and dramatic explosions.
The sweeping left hand adds to the drama while the haunting right hand melody contains chords, often in parallel movement, intertwined with swirls of notes that also help to set the scene.
