Programme Notes

Written in September, 2001, Flame was conceived for the mechanism of the chamber organ in Lee Hysan Concert Hall, the Chinese University of Hong Kong. It depicts diverse colors of flame though numerous changes of tone colors. With those changes in organ stops, the flame depicted is dim as well as bright, warm as well as hot, static as well as vigorous. It begins with a four-note “flame motif” sustained in the middle register of the organ. The flame becomes bright in the middle section of the piece. After the majestic passage and the cadenza-like runs, the music ends brilliantly with the flame motif clustering at the top, as if the flame will never be extinguished.
