"Dancing bears, painted wings, things I almost remember. And a song someone sings once upon a December. Someone holds me safe and warm, horses prance through a silver storm. Figures dancing gracefully, across my memory.”
This piano solo version of the famous track that anybody knows from the Disney’s cartoon Anastasia, is simply amazing. You can feel the snow falling out of the window, the sense of solitude the the girl feels. In the first part, the high register makes you think about an old carillon playing, then evolves into the middle and grave tones and the full harmonics pervade all your senses.. you can feel exactly as she feels. Empathy flows strong in you.
