Description
The emotional aspect of each movement is closely connected to each poem, and numerous word paintings describing the scene of each poem are employed. Generally speaking, the language of the music reflects the fusion of Chinese colors, post-tonal elements along with diatonic modern language. Harmonically speaking, the musical language is transformed from diatonic to chromatic characters during the course of the whole piece, featuring the cycle from yan to yin; spring is analogous to yan whereas winter is analogous to yin.
