Program notes

This piece was commissioned by the Hsinchu Wind Orchestra in 2006 and dedicated to the well-known Taiwanese composer Dr. Jau-Jen Yang. There are two movements: The first movement "Mutual Admiration" reminisces a sonata form and is based on two contrasting themes that are continually developed. The second movement "Two Butterflies Fly" extends the development further and provides an energetic finale to the entire piece.

This piece was selected to perform at the 2011 WASBE (World Association for Symphonic Bands and Ensembles) Festival. It was performed on July 7, 2011 by violin soloist Ting-Yu Wu and the Taiwan Wind Ensemble with Prof. Lian-Chang Kuo conducting. The recording was distributed by Mark Custom Recording.
