Chen Yi's music is greatly respected and widely performed, so this adaptation of Chinese Ancient Dances for soprano saxophone is certainly an asset to the woodwind catalog; representing her first work for the instrument. Originally written for B-flat clarinet and piano, the two movements of Chinese Ancient Dances are inspired by the ancient traditional Ox Tail Dance of the Ge Tian Shi ethnic group, and the Hu Xuan Dance as described in the poem "Hu Xuan Lady" by Bai Ju-Yi in the Tang Dynasty. For advanced players. Duration: 8'.
