    Based on five songs from various regions of China (“The Lion”, “Ten Sisters”, “Myela”, “Big Eyes Call”, and “The Bird's Beautiful Song”), this symphonic tone poem is Western neo-tonal treatment of the melodic and harmonic material derived from the five melodies. The colors and sonorities of the symphonic band are used to project the variety of textures that display the contrasting moods of the pieces to make a powerful musical statement.
