Luk, Wai Chun: Fire Dragon Dance 

 

 

Basic information

 

Notes

  • Program notes: 

    This composition is inspired by the "Tai Hang Fire Dragon Dance" in Hong Kong on Mid-Autumn Festival. Accompanied by the loud gongs and drums, there is a very long dragon stunned with lighted incenses lifted by more than hundreds of people in the street parade and it made a marvelous scene. Therefore, I intend to depict the lively atmosphere in fire dragon dance through music and show my imagination of the fire dragon. In music, the musical element of luogu (Chinese percussion ensemble) is added to imitate the gongs and drums in Fire Dragon Dance. Also, the soft and peaceful pipa passage at the end show another impression towards the dance .
