HUNG CHIEN-HUI - Le chant transfiguré II
Version anglaise ci-dessous.
« This piece follows from the orchestral work « Le Chant Transfiguré » which I wrote in 1995. It uses the sounds of temple chants, developing their forms and simple melodic lines as a method of producing the tension and magnitude which serve as the foundation for the motives and development of the piece. Percussion was chosen as the medium, because it can deeply exhibit the force in delicacy, the strength in flexibility, and tolerantly admit accidents to express certain eastern ideas and aesthetics both purely and fully. This piece was commissioned by the Ju Percussion Group to be performed by Les Percussions de Strasbourg at 1999 Taipei International Percussion Convention. »
