“Princess Sa-ho” is a goddess of spring. This percussion quintet depicts the changing scenery from cold winter to lively spring.
The piece has four sections: the intensity of cold winter, new excitement played by the keyboard percussion, the heartbeat of the earth reflected in the membranophones, and all these characteristics combined for a grand finale. Be expressive, using the full dynamic range of pp to ff, different tonal colors, and different tempi.
