For marimba solo. "Dream of the Cherry Blossoms" is a composition based on an improvisation on the theme of the Japanese folksong "Sakura, sakura ...". In this marimba solo, the world of fantasy is caught in an expanse of continously falling cherry blossoms. In the entire piece, the tone E is centrally integrated, and it must always be played (except during the last two measures) in the same tempo. The theme of the folksong is treated several times more or less in fragments and must always be played deliberately and clearly.
