Meng Yuan 朦塬 for piano trio (2016)

Meng Yuan

Meng Yuan was commissioned by Jack Body in 2012. The original work was composed for zheng, violin, cello & piano in 2014 and premiered on 17 December 2015 in a special concert “Body Music 2015 – Jack Body Cross-Cultural Music Conference” at the Zhejiang Conservatory of Music in China. The second version for piano trio alone was arranged for, and is dedicated to, NZTrio as part of a compositional project at the Conservatory in January the following year.

Jack’s words: “The title of the piece, ‘Meng Yuan’, suggests a faraway place, near the end of the earth, in my memory, a place of legend. When I listen to Zandanhuen (乌仁娜) ‘Yanzaganzootoisaaralmori’, I felt that this is where the story comes from.”
