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.

"Thank you so much for providing such wonderful opportunities for composers! The December 22 concert marked the first time my music has been performed in Australia. Without SCO’s program I may never have reached this important milestone in my composing career. "
