Music for the End of Winter for Solo Piano

1993 | 11 minutes

Contact for score.

The five movements of Howard Frazin’s Music for the End of Winter—all of them poised, delicate, terse—showed an unmistakable ease in working their somewhat Faure- and Ravel-like idiom.
— The Boston Globe

The pianist’s strong lyrical bent and feeling for nuance…suits Howard Frazin’s suite Music for the End of Winter, especially in the wistful first, third and fifth movements.
— Gramophone
