Wondrous Beginnings by Catherine Wilson is full of anticipation and excitement and has a celebratory feel.
The sweeping left hand with its ostinato figures allows the right hand to take flight with its written out trills and mordents to evoke birdsong, while the part-playing and flurries of notes add to the overall imagery.
