1981 Concerto for Bangdi Flute and Orchestra Completed in 1981, Concerto for Bangdi Flute and Orchestra is composed of two continuous movements. The first movement begins with a solemn prelude for wind and string instruments, establishing the first theme which expresses the fortitude of the Han Chinese spirit. The second theme, mainly performed by the bangdi flute, is lively and fast, expressing the purity and rusticity of folk culture with an eager, optimistic attitude. As a condensed variation of the first theme, the second theme's relationship to the first is evident, and becomes the heart of the first movement. The second movement is an elegant adagio using the first theme from the first movement played on the bass strings and developing a completely new way of thinking about music for the bangdi flute. Like poetry, peaceful harmonies unhurriedly narrate the timeless magnificence of Han Chinese history and culture. The coda recapitulates the the first and second themes from the first movement, but with some slight variations. In this way, the coda develops in an alternating fashion, gradually reaching the composition's crescendo. Concerto for Bangdi Flute and Orchestra was commissioned by the Broadcasting Corporation of China in 1981, and premiered the same year by the Taipei Century Symphony Orchestra, conducted by Nien-Fu David Liao Nianfu at Taiwan's National Dr. Sun Yat-sen Memorial Hall.
