Snow on the River
(From Four Ancient Chinese Paintings (Suite))

Available from Morning Star Music Publishing at or 800-647-2117
A white-on-white landscape, static, no movement, the scene is revealed by smooth, slow melody and harmony. A tone color of the final section relates to the Chinese cheng (mouth organ). All tones of the melody are added and held, one-by-one to form a tone-cluster of the veiled scene. Text is in Chinese (Pinyin phonics) with a translation and pronunciation guide in the notes. An English text underlay is included.
