Product Details


The Moon Reflected In Twin Ponds was commissioned for the Dr. Norman Bethune Collegiate Concert Band, in Toronto, Canada. This school has a large Chinese population and it seemed fitting to write a work that spoke to the Chinese culture. This folksong has been used to create a work that utilizes voices, graphic notation, and Chinese percussion instruments in its realization. Noteworthy, among the Chinese instruments used in this setting, is the erhu. The erhu is a two stringed violin held vertically on the knees, and played with a bow, like the western violin. If conductors have access to someone who can play this instrument, it will provide an affective, authentic and evocative addition to the performance of The Moon Reflected in Twin Ponds.
