|Composer:||梁智軒 LEUNG Chi-hin|
|Work Title:||離思 Thoughts of Separation|
|Text / Lyrics:||元稹|
|Premiere Country:||Hong Kong|
The use of expressive harmonies depicts the poet’s memory of his deceased wife and unfailing longing emotion. The composer applied two approaches to bring out the thoughts of love and longing. The first two lines of the melody are deliberately avoided the tonic note in which the music itself exudes the missing feeling. The last sentence of the poem is accompanied by an imperfect unconventional cadence that strengthen the hearts of endless grief.
