Sakura, Sakura (Cherry Blossoms, Cherry Blossoms)
Traditional
A traditional Japanese song depicting spring, the season of cherry blossoms. The pentatonic (five-note) scale that is most familiar to us is derived from steps 1, 2, 3, 5 and 6 of the major scale. Melodies like 'Oh, Susanna' and 'Weevily Wheat' are built on this scales. 'Sakura, Sakura' is based on a distinctive pentatonic scale. The melody is simple and basic without many notes or difficult rhythms. Even though the definition of 'Sakura, Sakura' is cherry blossoms, depicting spring; the melody has a certain melancholy quality. Today's multicultural awareness makes this well-known Japanese folksong a great choice for any concert program. Your ensemble will find it easy to pour all of their emotions and passion into performing this lovely piece. It's haunting melody will enchant musicians and audience alike as the players emulate the Japanese characteristics of the song. Included is an optional ending, giving you the option of concluding either on a major to a minor chord.
