While its melodies are distinctly Eastern, Ancient Flower's harmonies are, for the most part, in a Western style. A long, sensitive, and mysterious melody line will take you to another world. Its inner melodies are fun to play, and you can hear them dance around the main melody as the piece develops.
This piece has a flavor of Oriental atmosphere in its melodies. However, the harmonies are in Western style in most parts. A long, sensitive, and mysterious melody line might take you to another world. The inner melodies are fun to play, feeling each move twisted around the main melody. When the main melody returns in m. 32, more clear and plain tone is needed. You would imagine the flower is a dainty, tiny flower or perhaps an exotic flower, or perhaps even something else. Whatever you imagine, the flower will bloom in your way in this piece.
