Digital download of PDF score and parts: 2222, 2000, timpain, solo piano, strings. Duration: 10 minutes.
CANTON SNOWSTORM draws inspiration from Cantonese opera woven with Western and Romantic influences from the pianist’s decades of studies. The piece depicts a snowstorm in the subtropical climate of southern China’s Canton, a surrealistic fantasy that exists only in the pianist’s imagination. Through music, however, what seems impossible becomes convincing.
