The Picture of Li-Po Reciting Poetry


This work is inspired by a picture painted by Song Dynasty artist Liang Kai. The picture shows the Tong Dynasty poet Li Po reciting his poem. To depict the romantic charm, motion, and emotion of the picture, the music is constructed upon several isolated and contrasted phrases. The pianist portrays that poet at times in a soft murmur and at times in impassioned broad outburst.

Composed in 1999, this work has been performed at many music festivals across the world.

....an amazing energy, funding and collecting works is needed to organize and realize an orchestra such as SCO and all these wonderful concerts, you make the quality of music rise in every musical work and there are not a lot of you out there.
