Introduction: OUR HOPE IS BLUE AND GREEN is a musical poem which tells us to save our planet with its blue oceans and its green plants. We find not only joy and hope expressed by listening to the music, but also some dark and thoughtful lines and some passages with nervosity and fearful trembling. But the basic nature of the composition is positively and hopeful looking to the future, - and the beautiful sound oft he bamboo flute is a pure promise to experience some minutes of sublimity and friendship of hearts.
