Notes

  • Program notes: 

    ‘Snow’ was composed as a part of group of pieces connected to my experience of civil war in my hometown.
    Meanwhile first two pieces were using the original texts by Rimbaud and Ungaretti, this piece is based on English translation of a poem by Shang Qin, the text of each has deeply touched me, recalling my own experience of “Black January” demonstrations and bloody massacres of 1990.
