Who Knows How Many Flowers Fell?

花落知多少

for children's chorus and SATB chorus

2018

Everyone has to memorize and recite this poem when they are in first grade in China. I can still somewhat remember the mental imagery that I had, the liveness and colorfulness of spring, as a reaction to the poetry. When I read it again today, I find it not as simple and naive as I remember it to be and was inspired to compose this work. 

还记得这首诗大家小学一年级时都要背诵,当时脑海里浮现出的场景现在依然略有印象,只记得姹紫嫣红、春意盎然。长大以后发觉此诗并没有记忆中那么单纯、美好,便作此曲留念。
