Programme Notes

「Thousands of Pearly Drops」 is a piece written for ruan (gaoruan, xiaoruan zhongruan and daruan)quartet. The work is inspired by the clear and soft tone colour of Chinese plucked instrument. It is in ternary form, each section shows the unique characteristics of the instruments. In the first section, Allegro con moto, rapid semiquavers are defined as the motive. Lively and enthusiastic atmosphere is presented by the voice crossing among the instruments. In the second section, Andante, fresh and lyrical melodies become the theme of the section. Question and answer among instruments show ruan’s elegant colour. Finally, the tempo changes back to Allegro con moto. More intense and compact sound brings the music to the climax and an exciting ending.

This work is commissioned by Wuji Ensemble in 2008.

Performance duration: c.a. 5 minutes

點滴萬千是為阮琴四重奏﹝高阮、小阮、中阮及大阮﹞而寫的作品〈意念來自中國彈撥樂清脆柔和的音色,透過作品表現出阮琴不同的特質。作品用三段體的曲式,每一段都表現到阮琴獨特的一面。第一段為活潑的快板,急速的十六分音符成為此段的動機。聲部的交替,不斷地穿梭於四個阮琴之間,音樂的氣氛變得熱鬧,並充份表現阮琴熱情澎湃的一面。第二段為休閒的行板,簡單而清新的旋律成為此段的主題。一問一答、一唱一和,田園、自然的氣氛充滿全段,表現了阮琴清優高雅的一面。最後,樂曲再一次回到快板,阮琴的協作更表現無間,樂曲在緊湊、熱鬧的氣氛中結束。

此作品於2008 年由無極樂團委約創作。
