Writing of the "River Beas" suite began with this main melody in "Flow of Time", which is played in turn by the piano, cello and xiao. The melody was conceived as I saw a pair of butterflies flying - a scene that can carry the meaning of “reincarnation” in Chinese folklore, and hence I added on an improvisatory movement using the title “Butterflies”. Elements from “Cloud”, the first movement, are also given a new life in these movements, with the opening piano theme also serving to close the suite.
