Description:
Violin Concerto No. 1: Generation is written for violin and symphonic band. The three movements work, bounded by a short Prologue and an Epilogue, depicts people of the Generation Z, Y and X in Hong Kong respectively. The first movement (Generation Z) is gloomy in nature, it depicts the difficult situations young people have at the moment. It is followed by a very busy second movement (Generation Y), who are now at their thirties, working day and night for survival. The third movement (Generation X) has a mixture of moods, it begins and ends with quotations from the famous Cantonese opera Dainuifa, reminding the composer’s childhood memory of his parent’s musical interest. All the movements are played without pause. Sometimes, an optional cadenza is played before the Epilogue.
