Sonatina for Oboeand Piano was written in 2016. It consists of three movements, each being a letter of personalhomage.  The first movement titled“Spring Festival” is a tribute to Beijing, my birthplace.  The music opens with a fanfare passage by oboethat is immediately echoed by piano.  Thebrief dialogue quickly leads to the first main theme of the movement: an up-tempo,rhythmically vibrant melody reminiscent of a Chinese folk dance.  The second theme in a slower tempo, is clumsy,somewhat crude yet with abundant charm and humor. The first theme reappearsbefore the movement ends on the uplifting fanfare, much similar to how it allstarted.  The second movement titled “Ballade”is a letter to my beloved wife, whose elegance and passion inspired me to writethis lyrical, through composed piece as a manifest of love.  The third movement titled “Child’s Play” is dedicatedto one of my closest childhood friends, himself a terrific oboist.  The movement is loosely in an A-B-Aform.  The two outer sections feature aplayful melody in neo-classical style and are separated by a casual andwhimsical middle section.
