Programme Note

Every Grass A Spring

for Bass-Baritone (or Baritone), Pipa, Sheng, Electronics 

 Text by Du Yun/ Yang Nan

 

CHINESE

真理中, 朴素的声音
静默中, 们拥有

乌云, 变浓
我看你 低眉而泣

声响 蘊着信息
城市 苏醒 融化

鸟鸣,长嘤短呖
窗外,鸣笛断续
重启。
树上腾空跃起一群鸟,穿林而过
打叶声,留下
顶的花⼉开了
⼈⽣一世,草⽊皆春

在我们的城市里
你一定要去 看晨光,(一定要去)听音

春将重访
爱你如

ENGLISH

In truth, we find silence,
In silence, we build solace

You turn black, o cloud,
and let your brow sink.
Something disturbs you
I see you weep

The sound that first melted
bursting with blossoming
The city, re-awakening

The bird chirps, the spring begins to trill,
the bellowing beckons
reviving
The wings soar over a forest,
left a sound of waves over the leaves
the flowers flourished the roof,
a life, every grass a spring

In our city,
you must go see the sunset,
you must go listening
to the music

Spring will revisit you
She who loved you once
will love you anew

Listen
