Notes

  • Program notes: 

    Yong means surge, emerge, rise and rush in Chinese. The opening bass drum solo, which may be performed on the respective traditional bass drum of the orchestra’s nation was inspired by the often-heard accelerando rhythm in the opening of many Asian/Chinese traditional music. It acts as the stimulus, and urges the orchestra to move forward. The rest of the work is a hugely elaborated orchestral rendition of this important Asian motif. Written for and premiered by the London Symphony Orchestra.
