"Reflections of Asia" captures the feel of the Orient with its pentatonic themes. The oriental flavor is reflected in the percussion writing and use of common percussion toys. The main theme is presented in all voices of the band so everyone gets an opportunity to play this charming melody. This composition offers many teachable moments with its variety of articulations and dynamics. "Reflections of Asia" is an excellent opportunity to expand the cultural horizons of any young band; a truly impressive work.
