Description

for solo piano Wu Kui is a folk dance from northeast China. Wearing the masks of five animals--tiger, leopard, bear, deer, and roe deer--the dancers, usually hunters themselves, express their joy in work and life. Capturing the original style of this dance, this solo piano piece opens with animated rhythmic patterns, moves into a slower, free-flowing and lyrical middle section, and concludes with a return to the fierce exultant rhythms and motifs of the beginning.show more
