While Shi, Ci and Qu, classical poems from different periods in the Chinese history, express profound emotions, art songs are the iteration of the poetic mood.

Poets and composers has collaborated in the creation of such art songs throughout the history and left behind a treasure trove of classical works reflecting a multitude of styles representing different time periods.

Being an expert of Shi, Ci, Qu, Prof. TSENG Yung-Yih has his unique opinion on the subject. As a poet, he could effortlessly create on the spot, lavishing flowery words extemporaneously. Among his numerous works are poems associated with Taiwanese culture, humanities as well as beautiful sceneries. In this concert, a selection of such poems are set to music by contemporary composers, commissioned by TCO. We also invite a group of renowned traditional performing artists and vocalists to bring these poems to life, presenting the audience with an evening of poetic beauties.
