Ripples Across Stagnant Water
Ballet music for orchestra and Guoyue ensemble
Selected orchestral compositions for the ballet Ripples Across Stagnant Water, adapted from Li Jieren's novel about women's rebellion against the patriarchal society in late Qing Dynasty.
By blending and contrasting the colours of traditional Sichuan instrumental colours including Pipa, Dizi, Naobo, Tanggu with orchestral music, it provides a fictional dimension of bridging the gap between the past and the present to express universal values musically.
