Notes

  • Program notes: 

    Yi-Yi, a single movement composition for orchestra with triple winds, has many profound meanings in Chinese. It takes the Chinese meaning of “reluctantly to leave with a broken heart” to express different levels of emotions aroused when leaving or losing loves ones and turn these feelings into music notes. Structurally there are three parts in “Yi-Yi”: opening, main and closing. Similar to the aesthetics and the musical ideas of traditional Chinese Taoqu, each part is comprised of a number of sections. Octatonic scale is used as the basis of its pitch arrangements with different tonal centers and intervals in different sections, blending with the microtonal effects imitating the portmenti by traditional Chinese instruments in order to produce the varied delicacy. The composer also attempts to search her own musical language and expression by employing the timbre techniques of instrumentation.
