Inspired by the autobiography "Chinese Cinderella", this spirited and unique string work incorporates a pentatonic scale to help paint a picture of a young Chinese woman who struggles finding acceptance in a primarily patriarchal society.
The work begins with a duet between violin and cello, symbolizing a conversation between the girl and her grandfather, before taking off into a joyful dance. The middle section reflects the inner peace that the author Ms. Mah strived for, before returning to the more lively melody.
"Brave Spirit" is a unique work in the string literature, and has a powerful story to tell that your students will surely be enthralled by!
