Descriptive of the ancient landscape of Asuka, a region in the central part of the Nara district in Japan, this delicate yet noble work beautifully captures a sense of antiquity. Strong folk inspired melodic lines are featured within a clearly defined orchestration. An excellent work to help develop clear wind sonorities and introduce students to a non-Western musical sense of place in much of the same way English folk music has been captured in many classic band works.
