One of the most enduring Chinese melodies dating back to the Ming Dynasty, this arrangement of Feng Yang Song, or "Flower Drum Song," will provide technical development, listening skills, and is just beautiful. Arranged by Bob Phillips using the G and D major pentatonic scales, the sounds that might have been heard centuries ago are well-represented in the strings. All sections play the melody as well as accompaniment parts in pizzicato or as percussive taps on the top of their instruments using the finger pads of the left hand.
