The Light Princess Suite
The Light Princess Suite, By Ayumi Okada
For Cello and Piano, Early Advanced, 13 Pages
Commissioned by A.W.Duo, this suite of pieces follows a fairy tale called The Light Princess by 19th Century author George MacDonald (mentor and role model to such greats as C.S. Lewis and J.R.R. Tolkien). Each suite features a critical moment in the story whose title is directly drawn from the novel: I. She Laughs Too Much, II. Look at the Moon, and III. This Is Very Kind of You.
