Caprice Of Nature 《然界畅想》 (for Chinese chamber ensemble)

Published by Sulwyn Lok


‘Caprice of Nature’ depicts the multiple facades of Mother Nature, who is ever so enigmatic and dynamic. The short opening passage speaks of the mystery behind nature. Without warning, the forces of nature sweep all into the allegro passage, where the main theme is introduced. Irregular and changing time signatures throughout portray the erratic, unpredictable behaviour of nature. The coda recapitulates the main theme, but this time as a stately procession with a steady 2/2 time signature, illustrating the reverence of mankind for nature's creation and destruction. The work is characterized by the use of the ensemble to make musicians and audience alike feel one with nature. Uncommon percussion instruments such as the thunder drum, rain stick and thunder sheet are used, while other mainstream percussion and ensemble instruments adopt techniques to create sounds of nature, setting the stage for an immersive experience. ~ 22 August 2015 Ding Yi Youth Ensemble (DYYE) 鼎艺青年团, 2015 Concert "Spark" Live Recording Conductor: Tan Qing Lun #audio #Chinese Orchestra #Chinese #chamber #ensemble #Chamber #Music #ensemble #Ding #Yi #Youth #Ensemble #Instrumental #Nature
