Programme Notes

此曲是描寫香港維多利亞海港的夜景。坐在渡海小輪上,一陣陣微風吹過,加上眼前迷人的夜景,使人身心舒暢。樂曲的開端就好像接二連三海浪從遠處捲過來一樣。之後就是主題的出現,而不同的音樂元素將樂曲慢慢地推進高潮。音樂很快就平伏下來,樂曲亦隨之而結束。樂曲寫於二○○○年,由香港中樂團首演,其後亦由其他不同的中樂團演出,並於二○○二年作新加坡首演、二○○七年作新西蘭首演、二○○九年作台灣及馬來西亞首演。此曲獲中華人民共和國文化部藝術司與中國民族管弦樂學會聯合主辦的「新繹杯」青年作曲家民族管弦樂作品評獎銅獎。

As the title suggests, the music portrays a night scene of Hong Kong’s Victoria harbour. Crossing the harbour in a ferry, you can feel the breeze brushing your skin, and you cannot help feeling captivated by this charming harbour scene at night. The music opens with wave after wave surging in from afar. It is followed by the theme which consists of different elements that slowly bring the music to its climax before it comes to a brief close. Written in 2000, this piece was premièred by the Hong Kong Chinese Orchestra and later performed by various Chinese orchestras. A Singapore première took place in 2002, while a New Zealand premiere in 2007, Taiwan and Malaysia in 2009. The music was awarded Bronze in the ‘Xinyi Cup’, granted by the Art Department of the Ministry of Culture of China and the China Nationalities Orchestra Society for distinctive works for Chinese orchestra by young composers.
