As the title suggests, this new piece from composer Yukiko Nishimura depicts the joy of riding on a merry-go-round or carousel. The main melody is delightful and memorable. Yukiko's orchestration colors are unique and fresh. Her harmonic sensibilities lead a bit toward the Jazz idiom making her compositions different and very interesting.
