Program notes :

Written for the festival of 2021 Asia and Pacific Band Directors’ Association, this music was inspired by the scenery and culture of the old city of Tainan. The musical depiction of Tainan's famous landmarks and celebrated festivals contains four parts. 1 ) Firecracker Festival: Glissandos and ornaments of the wind instruments with random pitches create an effect of simultaneous explosions of thousands of firecrackers. The percussion instruments mimic a cymbal and drum parade, reflecting the liveliness and dynamics of the celebration. 2) Ceremony at Confucius Temple: A solemn atmosphere of the ceremony is developing under a stable beat with sustaining chords in the background. Wood wind and percussion instruments form staggered melody lines. 3) Fort Anping: With a motif from the folksong “Remembrance of Amping” hidden in the background, the history of the ancient fortress is revealed. As the timpani rumbles, other percussion instruments manifest a strong regular rhythm to describe historical battle scenes. 4) Renewed Impressions of an Old City: Through evolving harmonies and fast-playing phrases, all instruments contribute to a modern spirit of the old city, which combines traditions with innovations. This piece was commissioned by the Tainan Symphonic Band.
