"The bulk of the thematic material is drawn from the traditional Australian folk song, "Waltzing Matilda" (a tune that I adore), though it's not until the end of the piece that you hear the melody in its pure form. Fragments of the theme are sprinkled throughout the piece, rotated through the different instruments in the ensemble. See if you can hear it! What a special feeling when the theme finally appears.. very nostalgic, even tragic. So grateful to have the opportunity to work closely with such a talented and generous composer, and a fantastic ensemble."
"World Map Concerti" is a in-progress series of mini concerti composed by Shuying Li for memebers of the Four Corners Ensemble. Since each musician comes from a differently country, each concerto focuses on their unique cultural, geographical, and personal identities.
Listen to what our musicians have to say about their concerti!
