January, Fresh new start
February, I see one..two..a whole lot of crocuses
March, Longing for the spanish sun
April, Fickleness, fickleness
May, Seems so careless
June, Idle summer hours
July, Swing it out!
August, Can't believe summer is coming to an end
September, Dew and cobwebs
October, October blues
November, Sad and gray, no sun today
December, Santa Claus, snowflakes, candlelight and champagne

In this album I tried to catch the atmosphere of the 12 months of the year, being aware of the fact that the subtitles refer to the climate of the western European countries.
On a scale from 1 to 10 the level of difficulty is between 2 and 4.
The music of this album is on CD 3.

The theme is built with only 4 notes: A-A-A-E. The rhythm is derived from Chopin's prelude Opus 28 Nr. 20.

Was in fact a wedding-present for a niece in the U.S. who had just visited Holland in that particular month. If you listen carefully you may hear a faint tune reminding you of a Dutch Santa Claus song and a few bars of "Holy Night" as well.
The first notes, representing letters of her name, form the main theme, which pops up now and then throughout the composition.
