Zhongruan/Liuqin: Shih-Yun Lee / Little Giant Chinese Chamber Orchestra, Tien-Ku Percussion Group / Chih-Sheng Chen / National Concert Hall, Taipei, Taiwan / Commissioned Work, World Premiere 2014.7.13.

The second movement (Song of the Sun) is performed on the liuqin and illustrates the two spirits of the sun: light and heat. When the seven colours of the rainbow come together, the sun can shine forth its bright light and bring its warmth and love to the world.
