Yearning for peace is without national boundary and beyond time. Yet the cruelty of wars,with its endless slaughters and depriving people of families and loved ones, seems to be ashitshow repeating itself throughout the human history.

This concert program is presented as a song without the words, serving to relate war and peace in a pungent yet subtle way. YANG's orchestral transcription of the classic tune River of Sorrow depicts an epic tale about a virtuous woman's heroic act reacting to her deceased husband in the Qin dynasty. PENG's master piece Terracotta Warriors reflects the homesickness of the soldiers amidst an endless war due to the ambition of the Qin Emperor. Traverse back to our own time, Aleppo Concerto by WANG Chenwei is a manifestation of the composer's compassion for tragedy of the lingering Syrian war and the refugee situation, in which Middle Eastern music idioms are employed to depict the rise and fall of the ancient civilization and the wish to return to a peaceful time that people has been longing for.
