Program Note

“The moon is following us” is based on a folksong that is personally meaningful to me, for I learned it when I was growing up in Beijing, China. The song, Shangqu gaoshan wang pingchuan, sings of the high mountains in Qinghai province.

In this rendition, the folk song is reinterpreted through a variety of means. With the aid of technology, one can “enter” the interior of the song. A voice becomes a multitude of voices, heard at diffused distances. A melody becomes a landscape, and the composer a traveler traversing through its inner terrain.

The title is from a casual remark made by my 5-year-old son Albert. I imagine taking Albert for a stroll through a landscape – both aural and visual – just as my parents did with me in my childhood.

“The moon is following us” was commissioned by Ewell Concert Series, College of William & Mary. Pianist Yin Zheng gave its world premiere on April 10, 2015 at Ewell Recital Hall, the College of William and Mary in Williamsburg, Virginia.
