MELODY OF SPRING

In celebration of China's glorious past, acclaimed artist, Caroline R. Young, brings us "Melody of Spring", the second piece in her classic, "Dream of the Red Chamber" series. Based on the Chinese novel, it celebrates the devoted love between a young gentleman, Chia Pao Yu, and the beautiful lady Black Jade.

This exquisite composition features Black Jade in the Grand View Garden under a cherry blossom tree. She whispers to her confidant, a little bird, her dream of someday becoming Chia Pao Yu's beloved wife.

Black Jade was the true love of Chia Pao-Yu. Because of her poor health, she was passed over by the Chia family in favor of Precious Virtue as the future wife of Pao-Yu. On the night of Pao-Yu's wedding, she sings a final song to her beloved and succumbs to the tuberculosis that has plagued her all her young life.
