Legends of Kintamani was inspired by travels to Southeast Asia and specifically Bali. The five movement storytelling form depicts a return to a more innocent time, one where mythology and reality combine in fairy tales.

The piece opens with an invocation, a chorale-like ode to the landscape. The Garuda swoops in and forcefully claims his status, calling to his minions and commanding the forces of nature. At the end of the movement he performs Silat, a Malaysian form of stylized combat. He alights having been beguiled by a rainbow and sings a serenade to her. Night falls, and the solo cello evokes a soft veil surrounding the environment. The forest creatures come to a rest while mysterious sounds and voices emanate from different corners of the landscape. Gamelan textures lead the way into the morning, an aubade signifying a joyous new beginning. - Su Lian Tan
