Programme Notes

Verdigris, a greenish-blue substance which forms a thin covering on articles of copper, may be regarded as a symbol of old age or long history. This piece is inspired by the Chinese poem “Stilled Bell” written by Yuan Kejia in 1946. The poet describes himself as a great verdigris’d ancient temple bell which has being bearing the brunt of the wild winds from all sides and listening to the rain rushing past the windows in the last 3,000 years. The music tries to echo what this bell may have seen, while representing some bell-like sounds made up of different harmonics at various passages. The Great Verdigris Bell was commissioned by the Singapore Ministry of Education as a set piece for Chinese orchestras of all junior colleges participating in the Singapore Youth Festival 2007.

在銅上簿簿一層的銹綠物質可以代表著悠長的歷史或歲月的見證。這首作品的靈感來自中國詩人袁可嘉於1946年創作的現代詩《沉鐘》。詩人把自己比作一具古寺中銹綠的洪鐘,在過去三千年聽盡窗外的雨聲及收容八方的野風。音樂作品嘗試描述這具古老洪鐘可能看過的事物,也在各片段中應用由不同泛音組成的類似鐘聲的音響。《鏽綠的洪鐘》是由新加坡教育部委約創作,指定為參加2007年新加坡青年節演出的所有初級學院華樂隊的指定比賽曲目。
