“ranks with Rosenberger’s earlier, highly-esteemed ‘Water Music of the Impressionists’ and ‘Reverie’ CDs… beauty of tone and ability to create moods.. depth of interpretation” Stereo Review

Carol Rosenberger writes: In 1979, when digital recording was a new and rare process, I put together a group of “water” pieces for my first digitally recorded album, Water Music of the Impressionists. Ever since then I have been asked when and if another “water music” recording would surface. As I thought about a possible sequel over the years, it began to take shape as a collection of more personal expeiences connected with water, rather than the primarily pictorial images which had been the theme of the first “water” recording.
