Quick Overview

Haze reverie and faint longing is budding from the depth of free and graceful meditation? The pitch material in the piece is drawn from the Jieshi Tune of You Lan, the earliest Chinese ancient ch?in music score discovered so far (written by Qiu Ming, 494-590 DC). The thoughtful melodies, taken from the opening section, are woven together in a double canon, as the recapitulation part of the piece, leaving a lasting impression after the quiet ending. In contrast to the two outside sections, the middle is more animated and active.
