Trip to Vietnam in November 2016
My composition ‘The ride to a crescent moon’ for 5 instruments (piano, flute, violin, oboe and dan bau) were premiered at the National Academy of Vietnam in Hanoi during the 34th Asian International Composers Conference.
It was a nerve wracking experience when musicians had to play my work and I had to sit in an audience and listen for the first time my composition come to life! Exciting, thrilling and nerve wracking…what if..it sound really bad! Ha ha! And in a reality, it was a wonderful performance and even better then I have imagined, they played with true expressions of the piece to tell a story, the ‘myth’ I have envisioned.
Very special indeed! And mixing up with hundreds of other Asian composers was a great learning curve and a great experience! You might listen to the recording here!
