Dragon Rhyme

For Symphonic Band

Chen Yi (composer)
Piccolo, Flute 1, Flute 2, Oboe 1, Oboe 2, English...


From the composer: Dragon Rhyme for Symphonic Band is in two movements: I. Mysteriously-Harmoniously,? and II. Energetically.? The first movement is lyrical, and the second powerful. Featuring the basic intervals found in Beijing Opera music, the thematic material in both movements is matched, and used economically for development throughout the work. The instrumental texture is rich in colors, from transparent and delicate to angular and strong. Taking the image of the dragon, which is auspicious, fresh, and vivid, the music is layered and multidimensional. It symbolizes Eastern culture. When it meets the world, it becomes a part of the global family.
