Programme Note:
These three short pieces, which run together without any break, are inspired by the poetry of Princess Shokushi (which can also be pronounced Shikishi), a poet, priestess, and nun in the late Heian and early Kamakura periods in mediaeval Japan. Her poems are filled with surprising turns of phrase and mood, shifting from light to dark in an instant, undercutting scenes of beauty with a sense of impending death and decay.My piece is an attempt to capture Shokushi’s interplay of light and dark, especially as found in her poetry depicting the changing seasons. In each of the three seasonal sections, one instrument’s music (flute, violin, and flute respectively) was composed following a strict pitch-matrix based on a numerological analysis of one of Shokushi’s seasonal poems, while the other instrument’s line was composed as a free commentary on and accompaniment to the more restricted, poetry-based material. In an additional nod to the work’s mediaeval Japanese inspiration, the form of the piece is based on the tripartite jo-ha-kyu structure of Noh drama. Those three sections are in this piece each associated with a season, the seasons in question being Autumn, Winter, and Spring, with Summer being left out at my personal whim. The poems, in the original Japanese and in Hiroaki Sato’s excellent English translations, are:
秋きぬと荻の葉風の告げしより思ひし事のただならぬ暮 Since a wind over the rushes told me that autumn came, things I think about have become unusual at dusk
冬の夜は木の葉がくれもなき月の俄にくもる初時雨かな A winter night: the moon, clear beyond a leafless tree, clouds suddenly as the first shower comes
山深み春とも知らぬ松の戸にたえだえかかる雪の玉水 Deep in the mountains, the pine door isn’t aware of spring – on it, intermittently dripping, beads of melting snow

Programme Note:
A Celt on the Great Wall is a fantasy piece in which a Celt (someone of Irish decent) explores the Great Wall. The piece is programmatic in nature but the plot, time period, and various other details are left to the imagination of the listener. The first movement is a slow sentimental exploration of the legend of Meng Jiang Nu (孟姜⼥) using the folk song of the same name and the Irish folk song The Kesh Jig.The more upbeat second movement explores the more heroic and majestic history of the Great Wall. Written in sonata form, this movement uses two original themes, one in a Chinese folk style and the other in an Irish folk style. There is a short interlude in which two more folk songs are introduced and become intertwined: Feng Yang (凤阳花鼓) and The Minstrel Boy.
