Programme notes:

Based on the poem ‘Bicara Dalam Sepi’ by Norulashikin Jamain, ‘Qie Yu’ is a massive composition, a universal “de profundis clamavi” that transcends cultural borders. The English translation of the title of the poem encapsulates the emotional essence of the music: ‘Qie Yu’ means ‘conversation in solitude’.
