形.色

2010-13

for piano  (9')

I. Dance of Flowing Streams (2012) 2'00"

II. Song of Crystal Light (2010) 3'00"

III. Splashes of Colour (2013) 3'30"  

The Images, Colours collection was dedicated to and written for pianist Mary Wu between 2010 and 2013.  

 

It contains three short movements: Dance of Flowing Streams, Song of Crystal Light, and Splashes of Colour. Dance of Flowing Streams is characterised by its fast and perpetual motion reaching towards Song of Crystal Light, which is, in contrast, simple, clear and transparent in character, capturing an idea of the reflection of light through a crystal. The concluding energetic and exuberant movement Splashes of Colour shows more pianistic virtuosity. 

Images, Colours was commissioned by Mary Wu with sponsorship from CASH Music Fund.

《形.色》是作曲家特別為鋼琴家吳美樂於2010至2013年之間而作。 

 

作品由三個短樂章組成,包括《溪流之舞》、《晶光之歌》和《潑染》組成。《溪流之舞》有快速常動的特性。《晶光之歌》個性簡約清新,表現出光線在水晶上折射的效果。終樂章《潑染》動力橫溢,並展現出更多的鋼琴超技效果。 

《形.色》由鋼琴家吳美樂委約創作,並獲得香港作曲家及作詞家協會管理的CASH音樂基金贊助。
