Zhou Long's realisation of this folk-dance, indigenous to north-east China, has all its kaleidoscopic colour and rhythmic drive, with some brilliant licks for each of the instruments. Scored for brass quintet (trumpet in C doubling piccolo trumpet, trumpet in B flat, horn in F, trombone, tuba), this work is within the technical range of good student groups, and amply repays the attention of professional ensembles.
