Programme Notes

「氣樂」是指用氣息吹奏的音樂,為笛子、三十六簧笙及加鍵低音管而寫。作者希望透過這首詼諧的三重奏小品,嘗試探索中國吹管樂重奏的空間。三個簡短樂章,猶如引子、間奏及尾奏的關係。此作品於2010年由津樂竹笛演奏團委約,費用由「CASH音樂基金」贊助。

In traditional Chinese instrumental ensembles such as Shanghai silk and bamboo ensemble and quintet for Cantonese music, they normally consist of different families of instruments. Though there are traditional Chinese ensembles like tutti winds with percussion, an intimate style of chamber music for Chinese winds is still waiting to be explored. As wind instruments requires “Qi” (breathing) to make the sound, the title “Qi Yue” means the music performed by wind instruments, namely for dizi, 36-keyed sheng and keyed bass guan, a revolutionary combination. The piece consists of three tiny movements, which can be viewed as an introduction, intermezzo and a coda. This humorous trio requires the independency of individual lines with occasional display of individual virtuosity. This work is commissioned by Tsun Lok Dizi Ensemble in 2010 with sponsorship from CASH Music Fund.
