    The Pierrot Lunaire Ensemble Wien ® is an internationally appreciated ensemble founded in Vienna by flutist Silvia Gelos and pianist Gustavo Balanesco in order to counteract the discrepancy between the reality of the musical life on one side and the dreams of the musicians on the other. The main aim of the ensemble is to offer distinctly different concert programs to audiences and at the same time widen its view and understanding of concerts.

    The discovery of new repertory
    Typically for this internationally castled soloist ensemble is its innovative programmatic work and its self-accountable organizational structure. When Pierrot Lunaire Ensemble Wien ® produces international concerts, it reserves considerable space for the classic works of the twentieth century in order to develop these exchanges and progress beyond the stage of mere discovery, and with also the purpose of developing cultural relations. Pierrot Lunaire Ensemble Wien ® regularly collaborates with Austrian and foreign institutions.

    Pedagogical approach
    As part of the pedagogical approach, the musicians of the Pierrot Lunaire Ensemble Wien ® give workshops in contemporary music for children's and the ongoing project: Presentation of Schönbergs Pierrot Lunaire op.21 for upper-school pupils in cooperation with international institutions. They also give instrumental master-classes. This teaching is aimed primarily at young students in various disciplines (instrumental classes, contemporary techniques, notation, contemporary chamber music, etc) with their extensive knowledge of modern and contemporary music, and their experience with young musicians, Pierrot Lunaire Ensemble Wien´s performers are an excellent coaching resource for students working on repertoire from the 20th and 21st Centuries.

    International action
    Pierrot Lunaire Ensemble Wien ® contributes to the discovery of the works and the musical ideals of young Austrian and foreign composers by including a pedagogical approach to their works which brings together the musicians, the composers and young students from other countries. Pierrot Lunaire Ensemble Wien ® invites young foreign composers to participate in its international musical season. The Pierrot Lunaire Ensemble Wien ® presents worldwide between 50 - 60 performances a year of contemporary music in all aspects at the highest artistic level in addition to confirmed styles at international festivals, important concert events, in notable concert venues and its own concert cycles.

    Jun Qian, clarinet
    Kae Hosoda-Ayer, piano

    from Albany TROY1528



    Like volume one of East Meets West, this recording is a collection of new music for clarinet by Chinese composers who have lived, studied, and worked overseas. The compositions combine Chinese cultural elements with Western art music to create a unique intersection of cultures through the use of tone colors produced by the combination of clarinet with Chinese instruments, sound effects created with the use of both Chinese and Western musical forms and harmonic language, and a blend of classical and contemporary musical idioms. All the music on this recording was written or arranged for clarinetist Jun Qian. On the music faculty at Baylor University, Jun Qian is principal clarinetist of the Waco Symphony. Previously he was principal clarinetist of the Shanghai Philharmonic and studied at the Shanghai Conservatory and Eastman. He has concertized throughout China, and has performed and taught in the U.S., Europe, Asia and Canada.

    ○ Werkeinführung:
    Was macht ein Musikwerk aus? Ist es die Einheitlichkeit seines Stils und seiner Idee, die Person eines Autors oder einer Autorin? Oder lassen sich – wie im ersten Werk dieses Konzerts – auch ganz andere Kriterien denken, welche die Vielfalt unserer heutigen Musikkultur abbilden?
    Ein Konzert für Violoncello und Orchester, dessen drei Sätze von drei Komponisten komponiert wurde, die aus den USA, Europa und Ostasien stammen – diese ungewöhnliche Idee erinnert daran, dass es in der Musikgeschichte schon immer Versuche gab, ein Werk nicht in Alleinverantwortung, sondern als Gemeinschaftsarbeit zu schaffen.

    Dhyana derives its inspiration from the cultivation of thought in Buddhism and the process of gathering scattered ideas and focusing them to arrive at enlightenment. I designed the music based on the concept of knowing with clear mind, of coming from existence into nothingness. To express the transformation from the mundane, to the serene and finally to purity, the musical structure goes from complex to simple in pitch, from dense to relaxed in rhythm, from tight to open in range, from colorful to monotonous in timbre, from foreground to background in space of sonority. I bring the distinguishing features of each instrument into full play in homage to ancient Chinese instruments and musical gestures. For instance, the Chinese sounds of bells, chimes, and gongs and the harmonics of the guqin (a Chinese long zither), are recreated by playing inside of the piano; the sound of temple blocks and the various sonorities of the guqin are re-created in the violin and cello; and the reciting style of the vertical Chinese bamboo flute is translated into glissandos and microtones in the flute and clarinet. Dhyana was composed in 1989 and completed in March of 1990. The composition, which won the Fifth International Composition Competition in d'Avray City, France on February 4, 1991 and the Dr. Rapaport Prize at Columbia University, is dedicated to professor Chou Wen-chung.

    A landmark study in “translating” traditional instrument technique into a contemporary language, Su (Tracing Back) has usually been performed in the west in a version for harp and flute, but the original piece was composed in 1984 for flute and guqin “at the request of the contemporary qin scholar Wu Wenguang”, writes Zhou. Since then, Su (Tracing Back) has enjoyed an underground reputation among guqin players of mainland China, with generations of photocopies of the score and bootleg cassettes from a sole master copy of a studio recording at China Record Company passed along over the last 24 years. This is the first worldwide recording of the original version.
    The Chinese character Su has the meaning of tracing back to the source or recalling ancient times. SU was inspired by the distinctive qualities of the ancient Chinese q'in, a seven-string plucking instrument similar to the zither.

    Wild Grass for Solo Cello (1993)
    Composer: ZHOU Long (b. 1953)
    Poem recited in Chinese by the composer, recorded specially for this concert.

    Alvin Wong, cello
    November 13, 2014
    Sprague Hall, Yale School of Music, New Haven CT.

    Program Notes:
    Zhou Long frequently references to Chinese literature for his music. Wild Grass is based on the Foreword to the poem of the same title by Lu Hsen (1881-1936), the father of contemporary Chinese literature, who was not only a great writer but also a great revolutionary thinker. Here is an English translation, by Feng Yu-sheng (1931), of the poem you hear recited by the composer himself (recorded specially for this recital):

    When I am silent, I feel replete; as I open my mouth to speak, I am conscious of emptiness.

    The past life has died. I exult over its death, because from this I know that it once existed. The dead life has decayed. I exult over its decay, because from this I know that it has not been empty.

    From the clay of life abandoned on the ground grow no lofty trees, only wild grass. For that I am to blame.

    Wild grass strikes no deep roots, has no beautiful flowers and leaves, yet it imbibes dew, water and the blood and flesh of the dead, although all try to rob it of life, As long as it lives it is trampled upon and mown down, until it dies and decays.

    But I am not worried; I am glad. I shall laugh aloud and sing.

    I love my wild grass, but I detest the ground which decks itself with wild grass.

    A subterranean fire is spreading, raging, underground. Once the molten lava breaks through the earth's crust, it will consume all the wild grass and lofty trees, leaving nothing to decay.

    But I am not worried; I am glad. I shall laugh aloud and sing.

    Heaven and earth are so serene that I cannot laugh aloud or sing. Even if they were not so serene, I probably could not either. Between light and darkness, life and death, past and future, I dedicate this tussock of wild grass as my pledge to friend and foe, man and beast, those whom I love and those whom I do not love.

    For my own sake and for the sake of friend and foe, man and beast, those whom I love and those whom I do not love, I hope for the swift death and decay of this wild grass. Otherwise, it means I have not lived, and this would be truly more lamentable than death and decay.

    Go, then, wild grass, together with my foreword!

    金石丝竹_作曲:周龙 (为中国笛、埙、长笛、单簧管、打击乐、小提琴、大提琴而作) 获美国哈佛大学弗朗姆音乐基金会作曲委约, 完成于1996年。 同年6月12 日由著名中国笛子演奏家陈涛与纽约新音乐团合作再纽约卡内基音乐厅世界首演。

    “丝竹”早在远古的中国音乐中就已成为不可缺少的组成部分。 这首作品以唐代大曲的音乐结构为基础, 分为三个乐章: 第一乐章-- 散序。 开始由低音大笛引入, 其节奏缓慢自由, 出始众乐不齐, 并在中部以曲笛交替, 丝、竹次序发声而后层次增加, 节奏散慢至紧凑。 第二乐章--中叙。 以埙为独奏乐器, 幽雅抒情。 主要以弦乐的泛音衬托出音色多变的吹管声部及华彩乐段,表现出飘然回荡的意境。 第三乐章 -- 破。 节奏急促多变。 在发挥梆笛清脆华丽的同时, 以弦乐拨奏及敲击音响形成与管乐的对话。 最后以笛子的华彩乐段推向高潮而结束全曲。 1998 年由美国卡拉录音公司 Cala Records, Inc. 出版发行。

    Here is the english translation of the poem Wild Grass by Lu Hsen that is recited:

    When I am silent, I feel replete; as I open my mouth to speak, I am conscious of emptiness.

    The past life has died. I exult over its death, because from this I know that it once existed. The dead life has decayed. I exult over its decay, because from this I know that it has not been empty.

    From the clay of life abandoned on the ground grow no lofty trees, only wild grass. For that I am to blame.

    Wild grass strikes no deep roots, has no beautiful flowers and leaves, yet it imbibes dew, water and the blood and flesh of the dead, although all try to rob it of life, As long as it lives it is trampled upon and mown down, until it dies and decays.

    But I am not worried; I am glad. I shall laugh aloud and sing.

    I love my wild grass, but I detest the ground which decks itself with wild grass.

    A subterranean fire is spreading, raging, underground. Once the molten lava breaks through the earth's crust, it will consume all the wild grass and lofty trees, leaving nothing to decay.

    But I am not worried; I am glad. I shall laugh aloud and sing.

    Heaven and earth are so serene that I cannot laugh aloud or sing. Even if they were not so serene, I probably could not either. Between light and darkness, life and death, past and future, I dedicate this tussock of wild grass as my pledge to friend and foe, man and beast, those whom I love and those whom I do not love.

    For my own sake and for the sake of friend and foe, man and beast, those whom I love and those whom I do not love, I hope for the swift death and decay of this wild grass. Otherwise, it means I have not lived, and this would be truly more lamentable than death and decay.

    Go, then, wild grass, together with my foreword!
