Fantasia : on a Mongolian folk tune
by Tony Wheeler (2017)
This piece is written in the spirit of variations, but does not adhere strictly to that form. The main theme is a Mongolian folk song, Gada Meiren. Gada Meiren led a revolt around the 1930s, protesting against the sale of Mongolian land. The uprising was unsuccessful, but nevertheless Gada Meiren is regarded as the national hero of Inner Mongolia.
Instrumentation: Violin, piano.
Duration: 6 min.
- Inspired by: Folk music
