Programme Notes

每個城市都有她獨特的聲音,香港亦不例外。為薩克管及管樂團而寫的《城》是作曲家對其所屬城市的寫照。作品融合了激情、平靜、悲哀、喜樂,並或許帶有一絲髒污的感覺。《城》由香港城市管樂團委約,費用由香港作曲家及作詞家協會轄下的「CASH音樂基金」贊助,並特別為薩克管演奏家孫穎麟度身而作。

Every city has its own soundscape, and Hong Kong is no exception. “City”, written for saxophone and symphonic band, is a portrait of the place I belong to. This work is a melange of excitement, peace, sorrow, joy, and perhaps a bit of dirtiness. “City” is written for and dedicated to saxophonist Timothy Sun, commissioned by Citywinds Ensemble with sponsorship from CASH music fund.
