Program Notes

This piece was commissioned by the Hsinchu Wind Orchestra in 2006 and dedicated to the well-known Taiwanese composer Dr. Jau-Jen Yang. There are two movements: The first movement Mutual Admiration reminisces a sonata form and is based on two contrasting themes that are continually developed. The second movement Two Butterflies Fly extends the development further and provides an energetic finale to the entire piece.

This piece was selected to perform at the 2011 WASBE (World Association for Symphonic Bands and Ensembles) Festival. It was performed on July 7, 2011 by violin soloist Ting-Yu Wu and the Taiwan Wind Ensemble with Prof. Lian-Chang Kuo conducting.

- Program Note from publisher

The Butterfly Lovers is a Chinese legend of a tragic love story of a pair of lovers, Liang Shanbo (梁山伯) and Zhu Yingtai (祝英台), whose names form the title of the story. The title is often abbreviated to Liang Zhu (梁祝).
