about

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.

《雙魚》組曲的創作,是由《時間河流》中分別由鋼琴、大提琴和洞簫輪流演奏的主旋律開始的。我首先看到一雙蝴蝶飛舞,腦海繼而產生旋律。這個畫面亦使我想起中國民間故事入面梁祝化蝶,因此以《蝶》為題加入後面充滿即興意味的樂章。第一樂章《雲端》內的部分元素在這兩個樂章中重現,並用了開頭的鋼琴旋律為組曲作結,首尾呼應。
