Fei Yang (Chinese: raised by the wind) has been inspired by the wind and ideas best expressed by the following quotations: "..the ch'i of heaven and earth combine to create wind. The ch'i and winds of the cosmos are thus correct, and the twelve pitches become fixed." History of the Han: "Music is the means by which the sage stirs heaven and earth, moves the ghosts and spirits, shepherds the multitude of men, and completes the natures of all diverse things." Feng-Su T'ung-I: "Music is fundamentally non-representative, exhibiting pure form not as an embellishment, but as its very essence." Benedetto Croce.

    “Ms. Lee is one of Canada’s most accomplished composers who continues to use her Chinese background as an inspiration and motivation for producing challenging and fascinating works. The music is highly crafted and original with an accurate sense of colour and form. Her sensitive use of contrast and dynamics...

    give her pieces a three dimensional aspect, which transports the listeners to a mystical space beyond the concert hall. Fei Yang in her Voices in Time cycle is one of the most fascinating works I have ever heard for accordion. The instrument at times blends perfectly with the four strings in the ensemble and then suddenly becomes an intruder such as a fierce wind or act of nature.�

    Fei Yang (2000), an emotional and virtuoso powerhouse piece performed with unbelievable passion by Accordes and accordionist Joseph Macerollo. This is ensemble writing and playing at its best. Though at times challenging aurally, it is the beauty in texture and rhythm which makes Renew’d at ev’ry glance a...

    “Dynamic energy flows upward in Hope Lee’s Fei Yang [driven by the wind] (2000)�. Joseph Macerollo’s masterful accordion growls, roars, and surges among propulsive rhythms of the excellent Accordes String Quartet,. The energetic continuity of this piece is remarkable. ....The phrase ‘Renew’d at ev’ry glance’ works...

    as a title for this album that mingles the work of two composers because the details and the shape of the music here, so carefully made and artfully assembled, reward repeated listening with pleasure and insight.� Stanley Fefferman / showtime magazine, 2009
