      Description


      In English

      Sekar Jepun is a piece of pure music. After the

      orchestra has entered, the reong twice commences an improvisation. After this, the gangsa ensemble decorates the melody announced by the flute. Sekar Jepun is a fairly recent composition. The interpretation by the gong kebyar of Peliatan is especially notable for the extreme precision of the

      attacks and the wide range of nuances.
