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.

《焰》是為香港中文大學利希慎音樂廳的室內型管風琴而作,寫於二零零一年九月。樂曲透過管風琴的音色轉化來描繪出火焰的燦爛色彩。不同的音栓組合表現出火焰的明與暗、溫暖與熾熱、靜態與強烈。樂曲起始由四個音組成的「火焰動機」在管風琴的中音部持續進行。到了樂曲的中段,火焰開始亮起來。經過一個莊嚴的段落及華彩般的急奏後,音樂燦爛地完結,而火焰動機一直延留在高音處,猶如一個永不熄滅的火焰。此曲入選作國際現代音樂節2009,於瑞典演出。
