Program Notes

This folk melody will be familiar to many directors -- it was used by John Barnes Chance in his Variations on a Korean Folk Song. The song is named Arirang, and it's a lovely tune in a legato setting as arranged by Mark Williams. A lot of different percussion instruments are used to create the oriental effects, although the texture is always light and delicate.
