My intention in approaching this poem was to express its meditative mood, sadness and beauty as well as the feelings of the poet who expresses deep love and enthusiasm for life. I have used a French translation of the poem and was inspired by traditional techniques used to transpose Chinese poems into music. Some Chinese instrumental sounds have been changed into voices.

I'm heartedly thankful to Mr. Jacques Clos, the former director of Conservatoire de Musique, de Danse et d'Art Dramatique du Pays de Montbeliard (France), whose commission sparkled this composition. To present four seasons in a Chinese Child's eyes I've carefully chosen four of Chinese nursery rhymes respectively from Fuzhou, Wuhan, Shuiji and Shanghai, among which the one from Shuiji is full of my life in the childhood. The dialects used in this piece keeps the locutions and musical styles peculiar to the locality.

Based on a text by Anna Achmatowa

sFr. 47.00
Text: Anna Achmatowa This piece is based on a phonetic analysis of the voice of Achmatowa as she reads one of her own texts, and it is the musical rather than the semantic elements of Achmatowa's recitation that have been used. A cantus firmus-like line (male voices) defines the melody of her speech in a slow motion tempo. The six choir groups run "homophonically" and are a vertically "harmonious" splitting of the cantus firmus. Commissioned by Pro Helvetia.
