Invitation to Wine for Guzheng and String Trio (2017)


Invitation to Wine is one of the most important poems of the great poet Li Bai in the Tang Dynasty. The composer made full use of the organization of this poem as the framework of the whole music. The whole song is a three-part structure, which echoes the beginning and the end, giving full play to the characteristics of guzheng performance and the dramatic tension of string music, and shaping the selfless realm and the image of a free and easy poet.
