“Shui Diao Ge Tou” from Poems of the Sung Dynasty is a piece for full orchestra. It was suggested by two poems of Su Dong Po. One is “Shui Diao Ge Tou.” The other one is “Jiang Chen Zi.” Based on a Western tradition, a strong Eastern influence is evident in the piece, in which the musical materials of the work are drawn from the traditional Chinese music.These melodic patterns would give more an Asian quality to this piece. The music is ingenious and entertaining. Although it is multicultural, it is unpretentious. A cross-cultural view of Eastern and Western music is provided by the composer's great expressive skill. There is poetic and sensuous beauty in the piece.
