《春賦》Ode to Birth (2014)

For piano and symphonic band Commissioned by Belilios Winds Premiered by Belilios Winds in Auditorium, Tsuen Wan Town Hall on 28 September, 2014. Performed by Nancy Loo and HKBU Wind Symphony in Academic Hall, HKBU on 5 December, 2015. Programme Notes 適逢庇理羅士女子中學管樂團成立三十週年,樂團指揮譚香盈小姐希望我創作一首管樂跟鋼琴獨奏的作品,主題是「春」。得知將會由鋼琴家羅乃新女士首演後,我便開始構思如何把作品變得更個人化,更適合羅氏演奏。我與羅乃新女士於機緣巧合下在監獄探訪時認識,當時我們所探訪的對象,是赤柱監獄內一群被關了十多二十年的終身監禁者。他們每一個都在年輕時犯下過錯,繼而斷送了自己的下半生。在探訪的過程中,我感覺到他們都對自己的過往有所悔咎,然後在監獄中重新找到對生命的熱誠。《春賦》所表達的,正正是這一種感覺。樂曲以低音號獨奏開始,以緩慢的小調描繪冬天最孤寂、最寒冷的日子。然後樂曲逐漸變得激烈,就如萬物都甦醒過來,從最壞的時刻慢慢好起來。樂曲最後以溫暖的和弦作結,寓意春天的來臨。
