Program Notes

Composer Chen Yi wrote Spring Festival as a celebration of the Chinese New Year and all the traditions that accompany this special Chinese festival. While the melody is drawn from a southern Chinese folk ensemble piece called Lion Playing Ball, the form of the piece is based on the idea of the Golden Section. The CD-ROM that accompanies this piece explains this mathematical idea and how Chen Yi incorporated it into the composition of this piece. Commissioned by American Composers Forum's Bandquest project in 1999.
