Notes

  • Program notes: 

    This piece, originating from the folksong of Shui nationality of Guangxi, was created in the form of boat songs with 6/9 meters. The first part takes the melody of We Have Something to Eat, to Live and to Wear, a grand song of Shui. The second part is developed on the basis of the major tone of Bad Taste of Wine Shall Not Be Attributable to Rice, a drink song of Shui people. The whole piece, with slow melody and the texture of the piano which has the rhythms of boat songs, describes that Shui people cultivate besides mountains and reside along rivers. This boat song, with even rhythms and pace, also reflects Shui people’s leisure life among mountains and on waters as described in their folksong, “In the sky are countless stars while on the waters are dotted Shui families.
