About

Commissioned by Morningside Music Bridge, Canada’s internationally recognized music program on the occasion of its 20th Anniversary, “Joy” is a 7-minute thrill ride that celebrates the sheer joy and passion of musicians coming together and making music. The piece is a fusion of musical styles, harmony, and timbre, mixing folky Chinese tunes with the edginess and lushness of the string orchestra. It starts with a lyrical introduction, before bursting into a colorful and virtuosic rhapsody.
