《合》Fuse (2016)

For erhu, harmonica and harp Commissioned by Yao Yue Chinese Music Association Premiered by Gordon Lee, Alex Lee and Isis Chao in JCCAC Black Box Theatre on 10 April, 2016. Programme Notes 為口琴、二胡及豎琴創作,是一個很大的挑戰。因為雖然已屆二十一世紀,但如此組合還是不常看到(或者根本未曾出現過),所以在樂樂國樂團委約之初,腦海裡根本沒有浮現任何聲響。後來,在創作過程中,考慮到既然各自的特色如此明顯,倒不如就把它們混合使用,例如以豎琴演奏具東方色彩的前奏、以二胡演奏西方古典音樂的音階、及運用口琴能吹奏和弦的特性,將三件樂器融為一體。這種將多元文化結合在一起的創作手法,正如作曲家所處的香港一樣,和而不同。
