Even the Sky would Age had it Known Love 天若有情天亦老 3′
This non-stop 3-movement piece is inspired by the love Chinese proverb and it’s composed based on my emotions on these 3 Chinese proverbs I read last week before this was composed. It derives from a poem by a Tang dynasty poet, Li He. The proverb means the sky is always the same, the rises in the morning and sets in the evening, and it will never age. Had the sky known love, it would also age like human being.
