D.F. / arr. YU DENGThis folk-style piece is set in an idyllic country village in northeast China. A vibrant entrance from woodwinds and violins announces the arrival of a group of cheerful young maidens. Syncopated rhythms and spirited melodies represent their playfulness as they dexterously twirl and toss oversized handkerchiefs in the air, while a harmonious largo section depicts their graceful demeanor. This jubilant piece ends with vigor and excitement as the village celebration comes to a joyous conclusion.
