This was written after we travelled to Tver, Russia, to adopt our two beautiful children in 1997.
The intro in this version may be a bit long, but the original had an even longer one, with the different instruments carrying out a prolonged exchange while discovering each other. I just can't bring myself to cut it down any more than it is.
Although obviously biased, I enjoy listening to this fairly simple piece.
