Dear Shamus

Description ? Will stick with 'evocative'.
Yes, her works are 'different' - not met anything long enough or powerful enough to leave a lasting impression. On a quick 'scour', the longest I can find is a trio of nocturnes for orchestra at 16m.
Just listening to 'Shredding Glass' - it's highly pleasant for writing notes to forums, but beyond that...?

IMHO this is impressionistic in a wider sense

Yes - I'd agree 'Tracing a Dream' is a more impressive piece than the 'Shredding Glass' I was trying.
I don't know - can a composer really do justice to him/herself in the limited time Rain W. seems to give herself in each piece ? I'm happy listening to 'Tracing..' but wouldn't be searching out more work because it was so outstanding.
Just a point of view - happy to have been given the option to make a judgment, thanks.
