Jianjia (The Reeds and Rushes)Back
Theme of the Work -
Jianjia (The Reeds and Rushes)(Wind Flower/ Message of Wind) is a kind of grass. Chinese literature, The Book of Odes, has talked a about folk song; in a section it records that Jianjia symbolizes grass’s plenty and ordinariness, i.e. the symbolization of all living things.
Summary / Story -
The original conception of the work was focused on pure beauty to describe human’s feeling of music. Tang, Hsiao-Shih’s sincere vocal performance is just like people’s feelings about Jianjia. And an issue that deserves special mention is that a trumpet solo and some wind musical instrument performance are used as accompaniment.
