Program Note:

In a midsummer night, the night sky draped low like dark curtains, as I wandered in the forest. I was inspired to write this piece by the lively scene of clouds of little sparkling fairies, drifting and dancing amongst the trees. This one-movement piece begins with the discovery of just few fireflies. They gradually find more and more groups to join in, and finally the entire forest is decorated with thousands of twinkles. The music depicts the exciting scene that fireflies fill the air with acrobatic and aesthetic grace. It also ruminates a poetic and tranquil feeling from the ancient Chinese literature "chasing fireflies with a little silk fan.”
(Ssu-Yu Huang)
