Inspired by the Oriental cranes I saw on my walks in Korea, I composed Aves Orientalis for wind quintet. At the university where I taught, a collection of these majestic creatures lived caged in an aviary. They seemed so demure when I would walk past them, which led me to wonder how they behaved when no human was near. In this, the second movement of Aves Orientalis, I finally answer that question. I imagine a ballet taking place by lamplight. The painting in this video was created by Virginia Lloyd-Davies. Visit her website www.joyfulbrush.com to see more of her beautiful work. The photo is from Google Image Search.
