Product Description

Swallow's Serenade. Tenor and 5 instruments. This piece of music was composed by Johnson Gao. It is a translation of the Chinese poem he wrote on February 6, 2022, which is a verse containing seventy Chinese characters: A pair of swallow is building the nest under eave of a dilapidated roof. They are flying out and back carried with mud and hay. I asked swallows: "Why are you prejudicially selecting that house, Which looks like a broken temple?" Swallow chirps back to me, Although its philosophy is not deep, the artistic conception is clear: "Skyscrapers look splendid. However, its glass is so slippery and it catches fierce wind all around. The shiny and magnificent halls provide nowhere to build a nest. How could we waste the beautiful spring time for nursing our chicks?"  Johnson Gao 202226, "" ; , ? ; : ; ;
