wither

​三瘦

for singer, clarinet, and piano

2019

Li Qingzhao (1084 – c. 1155/1156, alternatively 1081 – c. 1141), one of the most prominent poets during the Song Dynasty, was renowned for her three lyrical poems that include the character “瘦” (slender/ withered). I have set these three poems to music. The singer should use the pronunciation provided in IPA (International Phonetic Alphabet), which are reconstructed Song Dynasty pronunciations, rather than modern Standard Mandarin. 


易安三瘦词,今已还拟宋音并谱曲。唱者能操古音者上善。
