Guoyue Meets Contemporary Ensembles
1. Folk songs arranged for Guoyue groups, chamber ensembles and vocals (2020):
Selected re-arranged folk songs from Taiwan, Xinjiang and Nanjing, dedicated to cultures that are passing away. They are part of the RCM LNY Concert, London 2020.
2. Ballet "Ripples Across Stagnant Water"
Selected orchestral compositions for the ballet Ripples Across Stagnant Water directed by Jun Liu. The ballet is adapted from the novel of the same name by Li Jieren. It tells the story of awakening of female consciousness and women's rebellion against the patriarchal society in Sichuan in late Qing Dynasty.
By blending and contrasting the colours of traditional Sichuan instruments including Pipa, Dizi, Naobo, Tanggu with an orchestra, the music provides a fictional dimension of bridging the gap between the past and the present to express universal values musically.
3. First Breeze of Spring (望春風, 2021)
An arrangement of the famous Taiwanese folk song for piano trio.
4. Free Trailokya (2021)
A screen music medley for Pipa and chamber ensemble featuring the one and only Pipa virtuoso Fang Jinlong and the conductor Dai Quan.
