Commissioned by TCO, Tribute to Taipei is an ode to Taipei set for solo soprano, choir and Chinese orchestra. With six movements, the composer YEN Ming-Hsiu and the lyricist HUANG Ying take you into a journey among the landscape, culture and history of Taipei by music and poetry.

In 'Love Affairs for Mountains and Rivers' and 'Interweaving Networks', one would appreciate the beauty of nature and the daily life of citizen. In 'Temples and Ancient Relics' and 'Firework Fest', one could relish the nuances between old and new Taipei.

These are followed by the struggles for democracy in 'Sunrise in Liberty Square' till the dawn has come, sung by soprano LIN Ling-Hui. The work culminates in 'Tribute to Taipei', written in the prosody of Classical Poetry and sung by sonorous voices and vibrant instruments, paying a magnificent tribute to Taipei.
