Fantasy on a Japanese Folk Song

Customer Rating:   5 Reviews Write a Review

http://www.sheetmusicplus.com/title/fantasy-on-a-japanese-folk-song-sheet-music/6717296?ac=1

Fantasy on a Japanese Folk Song composed by Samuel R. Hazo. Score only. MusicWorks Grade 4. Grade 4-5. Score. 16 pages. Published by Hal Leonard (HL.4002376).

A tour de force of exotic sounds and emotional design, this major work from Samuel Hazo will leave your audiences breathless. Based on the hauntingly beautiful Sunayama, this composition tells a story of the inner conflict of a Japanese girl who falls in love with an American. She is torn between a life with him in America and her longing for the culture of her childhood. From time to time she plays a music box given to her by her parents (Sunayama theme), bringing a flood of homeland memories. The composer weaves together a tapestry of sounds and moods as the piece builds to a fulfilling climax of musical drama and power. (5:30).

  • February 14, 2006 Amazing!

    I love playing "Fantasy On A Japanese Folk Song." It sounds so beautiful, and the ocean drum compliments this piece perfectly. It's a different type of style from "Perthshire Majesty," which I also enjoyed playing, but this song definitely isn't disappointing!
