Three Memories (2013-2014)

for piano

The moment when I was asked to give a recital at the Taipei Economic and Cultural Office in New York, I decided to transcribe a Taiwanese folksong as part of the program. I chose the song "Spring Breeze" as the theme of the piece, yet the harmonies were altered and style modernized. The two-minute reconstruction of the piece became the encore of the recital. which was well-received and many musician friends encouraged me to transcribe more songs. As a result, I dug into my memories, gathered another two songs from my childhood, and put these three pieces as a set of pieces.

三段回憶(2013-2014)

鋼琴獨奏

我有幸於2013年6月5號時參與了駐紐約台北經濟文化辦事處的演出,當時策劃音樂會的朋友希望我能加入一首台灣歌曲,我便將望春風簡單地改成了我的和聲風格,輕飄飄但色彩變化快速。簡單的兩遍旋律加上小尾聲,中間及開頭插入與旋律毫無關係的短旁白,僅兩分多鐘的短曲便成為了當時演出的返場曲。音樂會之後,對於民謠鮮少了解的我,受觀眾的歡迎及音樂家朋友的鼓勵,決定多寫兩首改編曲,將我對台灣的記憶化為音樂。因此,我另選了兩首與我的成長記憶有著密切關係的兩首台語歌,將其共計三首編成套曲。
