Five variations on the well-known Japanese folk song Sakura (cherry blossom), with Baroque influence.

Neil Heyde cello, Helena Brown harpsichord, Jane Webster narrates.

Images of cherry blossom from the UK, USA , Japan and my garden taken by Ben Rector, Albert Tang, Tom Wichser and myself.

This was my very first commission (by Yuriko Ota) after I strained my wrist and had to give up my dream to be a concert pianist but to become a composer instead.

Download SCORE 樂譜.

我本主修鋼琴獨奏,因手受傷改行作曲,接到的第一單生意,是日本人大鍵琴家委托以日本國歌寫變奏曲,但我對這首國歌毫不感冒,靈感全無,改用這首家傳戶曉名喚《櫻花》的日本民歌來寫變奏,旋律美,型象美,而略帶悲涼。自小立志和多年苦練琴,卻因手傷夢想成空,一如櫻花轉眼落英繽紛,這是我作曲時的心境。

録音由曾贏世界級比賽獎的大提琴家和英國出色的大鍵琴家合奏,多年後我把錄音加上英、美、日本櫻花形象製作同名音樂視頻,緬懷一位出色的演奏家。

Ho Wai-On has fond memories of Hong Kong's New Territories where she spent happy time in a village as a child. She wrote the music with the villagers in mind ― music that's easy on the ear. This is the story of a boy and a huge banyan saving their ancestral home from developers.


PERFORMERS

Nancy Yuen soprano; Rowland Sutherland flute; Glyn Williams bassoon;

Nathaniel Bartlett marimba; Teddy Bergstrom xylophone;

Alex Brangwyn percussion; child singers, and directed by Ho Wai-On


Lyrics by Dr David Brailsford Tong 湯大維醫生寫歌詞

(Dr Tong was Ho Wai-On's cancer consultant at Guy's & St. Thomas')


小時候曾在香港新界大圍村住過,渡過快樂時光。作曲時想寫廣東人會喜歡聽的音樂。講的是一男孩和大榕樹保䕶祖屋的故事。

阮妙芬和兒童合唱,樂器包括長笛、低音管、木琴、馬林巴琴,敲擊樂。何蕙安指導演出。

Photography: ANDREW

ANDREW (Mei Yuanjiao) was born in the US and currently lives in the Bay Area and Chengdu (Sichuan, China). He started photography in 1978 and has traveled all over the world on the seven continents and the North and South Pole. Mainly engaged in natural scenery and wildlife photography, in recent years he has focused on thematic photography of flamingos and penguins. He gave me some swan video clips to make SWAN BEAUTY. The following is the link to his work:

梅元皎攝影: 梅元皎在美國出生,現居舊金山灣區和四川成都。1978年開始攝影,足蹟已遍全球七大洲和南北極。主要從事自然風光和野生動物攝影,近幾年專注於火烈鳥和企鹅專题拍攝。他給我一些天鵝視頻片段來製作《天鵝之美》,以上是他的作品鏈接:


COMMENTS of Swan Beauty 評語  Updated 11 Jan 1月11日更新

"Anything with TWO pianos seems unwieldy, but this thing from Julian and Eri just melts together as if one player. Please tell Julian and Eri how enjoyable that piece is."

Andy Farnell, computer scientist, sound designer, author and a pioneer in the field of procedural audio.

“總覺得鋼琴二重奏的音樂聽起來會像不靈活的龐然大物,然而朱利安和绘理彈這個却彈得融合如一。請告訴朱利安和绘理我很享受聽他們彈這曲。”

安迪·法內爾,電腦科學家、音響設計師、作曲家和程序音頻領域先驅。


What does Professor Stephen Matthews say about SWAN BEAUTY :

" This is very beautiful, thank you! Modern but approachable and evocative.

I also like the way the other birds can be heard on the sound track, which reminds me of Rautavaara's 'Cantus Arcticus'. (HWO: Rautavaara did it much much better!)

I do hope there will be performance/projection opportunities. Bird organizations like the RSPB or local Wildlife Trusts might be interested."

Stephen Matthews is Co-Director of the Childhood Bilingualism Research Centre at CUHK, a linguist and amateur musician.

馬詩帆教授對《天鵝之美》的評語:

"非常美麗,謝謝!容易接受的現代音樂,令人回味。我喜歡聽到這有鳥声的音樂,讓我想起了芬蘭作曲家勞塔瓦拉的《北極之歌》。(何蕙安:真不敢當,勞塔瓦拉比我好多了!)希望這音樂視頻會有演出機會,或許英國皇家鳥類保護協會和地區野生動物栛會這樣的組織會感興趣吧。”

馬詩帆教授是香港中文大學兒童雙語研究中心聯席總監,語言學家及業餘音樂家。



Updated 11 Jan  BIRDS IN HONG KONG  香港鳥類 1月11日更新

Ho Wai-On: During all the years I spent in the densely populated Hong Kong, I mostly lived in overcrowded areas with tall buildings so close to each other that one could hardly see the sky from the windows. I could only remember seeing a few sparrows very occasionally. Professor Stephen Matthews has enlightened me that there is a variety of birds in Hong Kong if you go to the right places. In the photo gallery are some captured by his camera. If you like these birds, visit Stephen's blog he mentioned below and you will find more info about them:


何蕙安:我在人口稠密的香港度過的那些年,多住在擠廹的高樓大厦,從窗囗望出去見不到天空,只偶爾會見到隻麻雀。馬詩帆教授讓我知道,香港有些地方有很多種類的鳥兒棲息。以下照片庫是一些他影到的,如果你喜歡這些鳥,請訪問他的博客,你會找到更多關於它們的信息,博客的鏈接在下面:


Stephen Matthews : "Yes, birdwatching is a very British thing, although we have exported it to Hong Kong with some success. The RSPB has over a million members, which is far more than any political party. I like to think this shows we take our birds more seriously than our politics!

HK is actually quite rich in birds, especially at the moment when migrating birds are passing through. CUHK is a favourite haunt. This is a recent visitor - a Slaty-backed Forktail at Chung Chi stream (see photo gallery below). Maybe you can compose it!

HK may actually have become richer in birds since you left. As the mainland has become less hospitable so HK (especially Mai Po and much of the New Territories) has become a refuge. Also the forests have regenerated, attracting birds to re-colonise the area.

I wrote a blog about this at Tai Po Kau:"

https://www.inaturalist.org/journal/stephenmatthews/48786-new-residents-at-tai-po-kau

馬詩帆教授接著説:“觀察鳥類是非常地道英國人喜歡幹的事情,然而我們已頗成功地把這個出口到香港,英國皇家鳥類保護協會擁有超過一百萬會員,遠超過任何政黨,我高興地以為這顕示我們對鳥兒比對政治更認真!

香港其實鳥類非常豐富,尤其是在候鳥經過的時候。中大是一個它們最喜歡的地方。在以下圖片庫有一最近訪客,一隻在崇基溪流的灰背燕尾,你或可以為它作曲!

自你離開後,香港的鳥類實際上可能變得更豐富了。由於大陸變得不再那麼鳥兒福地,因此香港(尤其是米埔和新界的大部分地區)已成為它們適合棲息的地方,樹林也再生了,吸引了鳥類來定居。

我寫了一篇大埔滘關於這個的博客(鏈接在上面)”
