Program Notes

Are you tired of the same old sleigh ride? Then jump aboard the Petersborough Sleighride, (originally Petersburger Schlittenfahrt) a delightful work which depicts a horse-drawn trek through the wintry backroads. A noted favorite of European salon music, this charming piece paints a picture of a wintery romp through the snow.
