Imagine you are a composer, commissioned to write a work for two, primarily diatonic woodwind instruments, each possessing distinctive tone colors, a long history and strong cultural associations. You are writing music to be performed by two consummate masters of their instruments who can do virtually anything! Your biggest challenge is that you must somehow express the concept of "East Meets West." The last century saw the first large-scale cultural exchange between Asia and the West, and encounters with the music of Asia influenced some of Europe's greatest composers - Debussy, Britten, Messiaen, to name a few. And many extended performance techniques, (such as fluttertonguing, pitch bending, the production of "non-musical" sounds, micro-tones, etc.) associated with modern music in the West, have been a part of traditional Chinese music for centuries. Conversely, the introduction of western techniques, such as counterpoint, functional harmony and formal structures has provided Chinese composers with new creative resources of their own. "Dialogue - East Meets West" is the result of several years' discussion and planning. It represents an exploration in sound, featuring ten new compositions by five young Chinese and five young Danish composers. Their works are colorful and varied and provide ten distinctive visions of the musical encounter between China and the West. Whether combining tradition and innovation, eastern and western elements, borrowed or newly created musical resources, each piece is an exploration of how these disparate and seemingly mutually exclusive views can provide new possibilities for creativity and beauty. While the very nature of a "duet" implies a "dialogue", the variety of musical expressions create a 'dialogue within a dialogue'; the unique vision of each composer interacting with the vision of every other composer presented here. Introduction In each of the works on this program, you will hear the evolving cultural exchange between East and West, and how these young composers perceive and define both the differences and similarities. As in "Rong" by Yao Hu, where each instrument has distinctive melodic material signifying 'China' and 'Denmark'; Or Rofelt's "Circonflexe", where the instruments serve a purely coloristic function, drawing on extended performance techniques from both traditions, merged into a modern "international" language; Or the crystalline structures of Chen Ruomei's "Jue", whose serene coda is simultaneously Chinese and Western; Or the self-contained expression Monrad's "East/West-project 16", where the cultural interplay is seamlessly integrated into the music's overall texture. More explicit and nationalistic references appear as well, as in the pure folk-inspired melodies of Siqin Chaoketu's Yan Gui, drawing much of its inspiration from the Mongolian "Urtyn duu" (or Long Song) or the direct emotional appeal of Li Rui's "Peng Zhuang" and Chen Gang's "The Greeting from Afar", whose playful rhythms and modal melodies make for a delightful bridge between cultures, while retaining distinctive Chinese characteristics. Other works approach the instruments as equal partners, where the dialogue of East and West is approached in purely sonic terms, independant of any clear, cultural associations, as in Mette Nielsen's "Stream" and Benjamin de Murashkin's "Cascades", with very different results in each case. Or as in Sejlund's "Butterfly-Rain", where the very idea of "East meets West" inspired a poetic vision that transcends political/national/temporal boundaries, becoming instead, a personal journey. In short, each of these "different dreams" whether abstract or literal, avant garde or folk-inspired or a mixture of all of these elements, provides a creative space where harmony and beauty can be explored and shared. Close your eyes and let your own dream begin.
