Program Notes

An oriental atmosphere is created by the floating melodies of this exotic piece, originally written for orchestra. In the opening, a long, sensitive melodic line emerges, supported by Western-style harmonies. Just as a dainty flower slowly opens, this expressive music blossoms into a work of delicate beauty.
