Information about this recording

The Yiau people are one of the minority races in south-west China. They live in a scenic country with abundant natural resources,where meadows are surrounded by high mountains, and rivers flow through flowergilded valleys. The Dance is written in extended ternary form. The lower strings played in pizzicato, introduce a leisurely theme played on the second violins and woodwinds, depicting people gathering around on a festive day. An allegro tune played by the bassoon heralds in a lively dance, followed by a sostenuto middle section featuring the trumpets, horns and clarinets. Then the opening themes reappear to conjure up more and more excitement before the dance ends on a climax.
