FIVE FACES OF JOY for String Orchestra and Celesta

2nd Edition • 2009

STUDY SCORE


Program Notes

Premiere

The most recent member of the “Joy” series, FIVE FACES OF JOY offers five comic ways of smiling: a playful one, a jolly one, smile from a lover, smile from a dancing Godzilla, and a sweet smile before visions of Ondine swims away.

March 30th 2009 Field Concert Hall Curtis Symphony Orchestra Kuok-man Lio, Conductor & Celesta

This one-movement piece calls for a string orchestra and a very handsome Celesta player. Although it can be performed with or without a conductor, in the premiere performance, Kouk-man Lio was the Maestro-in-command as well as (trust me) a very handsome Celesta player.

Duration: ca. 7 min

Several compositions during this creative period ended up with five movements, five elements, five variations, or five instruments. Friends nagged me to reveal my secret fascination of “five”. I really didn’t want to disappoint my friends. So I made this one up: “Euhh, according to Chinese ancient thoughts, there are five elements in the making of the world. They are metal, wood, water, fire and earth. I was very synchronized with my culture heritage…” Wait, but I began this piece thinking about smiles, and it still puts a big smile on my face every time I hear it. The truth is, five faces just slipped out, putting themselves in this order. Not one more, not one less. All I did was being a good secretary: I listened and I wrote them down.
