Programme Notes

    This piece is commissioned by Taipei Chinesee Orchestra in 2017. Its fundamental melodic element is transformed from the antique Guqin piece “Yangguan Sandie”(Departure at Yangguan, a parting tune with a thrice repeated refrain), which flows throughout the whole piece and varies in contours and colors, to interpret different emotions in the depth of love. Missing is the only subject of this composition.
