Program notes

The verses of this piece are from a poem by Tsao Yu-Fong:

Want to pick daffodils by the lakeshore
Want to collect falling leaves in the woods
to write you a basketful of poems like Li Bai’s,
a bucketful of songs like Shang-Yin’s

Want to reach for stars in the sky
Want to gather pearls from the blue sea
to develop everlasting love with you and
happiness for ever and ever
