De la Neige en Eté (Snow in the Summer) (1992)
Concerto
for violin and large orchestra (3.3.3.3/4.3.3.1/3perc/hp/30.12.10.8)
This piece is inspired by a Chinese drama of the 12th century. A woman is unjustly exectued, nature testifies her innocence: her blood doesn't drop to the ground but flies away on a white blanket; a heavy snow falls in the middle of summer and the winds begin to howl.
The rhythm is influenced by the poetic form of the Song dynasty (960-1279). The organisation of the musical material is inspired by certain codes which allow one to understand the taoistic texts.

Ergon 6
(3(3pic).2(2.ca).3(3.bcl).2/2.2.2.0/3perc/hp.pf/12.12.8.8.4)
Eleven elaborated compositional ideas in the realm of sound surfaces and sound-combinations are in a field of conflict between static and dynamic. The atmosphere is inspired by the unrolling of Ariadnes thread from the cave allegory by Plato, the imaginary land of Uqbar by Borges and "schwarze Milch der Frühe" - the first line of a poem by Paul Celan.

Laufen auf dünnem Eis (1992-1996)
for orchestra (pic.2.1.ca.2.1.cbn/4.2.3.1/1perc/str)
A commemorative plaque at Ganghoferstrasse 24 in Frankfurt reminds one of where Anne Frank spent her early childhood. The peace that has settled over the Ganghoferstrasse today emerges as a deceptive idyll that does not protect from danger, persecution or death. Shortly before being murdered in 1980, John Lennon wrote in his song 'Beautiful Boy': "Life is what happens to you while you're busy making other plans". The title of this piece 'Laufen auf dünnem Eis' (Walking on Thin Ice) is taken from another of John Lennon's songs. This work for orchestra is not supposed to be a concrete permutation of these two influences, but attempts to create a wider-reaching, more universal atmosphere.

Blendung (2001)

Three movements attacca: I nebel; (haze) II schleier; (mist) III blendung (glare). The simple basic idea of ‘Blendung’ is the process of constant accentuation in the musical course of action, to lurid density during the third movement.
First performed on 26.04.02 in Bern by the Bern Symphony Orchestra under the direction of D. Kitajenko.

Dialogues pour Orchestre (2000)
(4.3.3.3/4.4.3.1/4perc/hp/14.12.10.8.6)
This work is inspired by the promenades and talks in the gardens of Jinan, capital of the chinese province Shandong. This is especially apparent in the pianissimi and the big divisi of the strings and sounds and its alternating impression.

Love Song and River Chant (2006-2014)
for orchestra (pic.2.3.3.3/4.3.3.1/3perc/hp/str)
Pentatonic music is a yoke for a Chinese composer. I want to shake it off, but at the same time I want to keep some trace of this "yoke".
The first song is based on the folk song "Small Road". The original song contains a deep helplessness. The melody is continually descending, perfectly expressing the sense of the lyrics. In China, love between the young was taboo in the past.
I composed the second song myself - it imitates the style of a river chant. The song conjures up the image of the incredible manpower required for this task.

Zheng (Im Wettstreit) (2008)
Concertino
for orchestra (2.2.2.2/2.1.0.0/perc/8.7.6.4.2)
Inspired by the Chinese translation for the theme "in competition".
I composed this concertino, commissioned by the Young •Euro •Classic •Festival Orchestra with the theme "In Competition" . This theme, though exactly appropriate for the spirit of the Olympic Games, posed a really tough task in music, for it is impossible to evaluate music works through competition. But inspired by the sound of the character "zheng" in the Chinese translation for "In Competition", I associated the theme with the Chinese instrument Zheng, a zither with 25 strings, because the two characters share the same sound in Chinese, and came up with the idea of composing a Zheng concerto in respect that concertos imply competition between the solo instrument and the orchestra. Unfortunately this idea was rejected by the commissioner for the sake of a solo instrument not included in the budget. With no alternatives, I composed this Zheng concertino without a Zheng by imposing some unique features of Zheng, like plucking, arpeggio, glissando, and grace notes, on all the instruments. To my great joy, it not only produced a strikingly fresh orchestra sound effect, which is totally different from any other orchestral music works of my own, but also gave me a new train of thoughts to combine western and eastern music styles, for which I owed my hearty gratitude to the music theme commissioned by the Young •Euro •Classic •Festival Orchestra and its demanding restrictions.

To explore the whole of vastness is the utopic aim, and yet the whole can only be seen in part. Dialectic between part and whole is expressed in terms of the exploration to extremities of a dimension and the freezing of other parameters.

An Ear to Flowers (2012)
for large orchestra (3.3.3.3/4.3.3.1/4perc/hp/str)
One day, Wendy, my three-year-old daughter, came to me and said, "Daddy, I was listening to the sound of flowers"and I was really astonished by her poetic language. I know she is fond of flowers but what I don't know is that she has a potentiality to be brought out as an obscure poet. Then I asked, "How is the sound like?" She sang, "Do----". I couldn't believe my years that I asked her repeatedly and there came the same answer as before. That touched off a train of my thoughts and I wrote this new piece by using the technique of distorting the spectrum based on note C and E as well as interpolation. And I decided the copyright of this piece is reserved for myself and its author royalties go to my daughter.
This piece was commissioned by "Hu Jingmin" Contemporary Music Foundation.

A Valediction (2003/04)
Six songs
for bass and orchestra (2(pic).2.2.(bcl).2(cbn)/2.2.0.0/timp.perc/str)
Texts: John Donne
Orchestral version of the six songs for bass and piano.
In 'A Valediction' I have taken six poems by the Baroque poet John Donne with one prevailing theme: the saying of farewells, the leaving of loved ones. The theme is circumscribed in Donne's picturesque language in a multitude of modes ranging from tender pain to powerful and reckless claims of freedom, and on further to ecstatic delirium in the knowledge that physical separation is revoked by spiritual unification.
In a similar manner to the text, the music circles around a complex nucleus of themes that merge into great lines and trace the various shades of feeling.
'A Valediction' is dedicated to Ute and Susanne Stoecklin.

Sinfonia (1978-1981)
for orchestra (3(afl-g,pic).3(ca).3cl-a(bcl).3(cbn)/4.3.3.1/4perc/hp.cel.pf/12.10.7.6.4)
Movement order: "In Catene - in Fuga - In Scioglimento". In a self-explanatory way, the title and movement order show that the piece does not try to follow classical and romantic form, even if it makes use of a large orchestral setting. The movement titles are merely a starting point for the compositional process, not a programme. In the final movement a theme from a motet by Felice Anerio (1560-1614) is re-worked and a Gregorian melody incorporated.

Eight pieces from the piano cycle 'Im Labyrinth' scored for orchestra
for symphony orchestra (pic.2.2.3.2/4.0.0.0/hp.perc/str)
These eight short pieces are orchestrations from the piano cycle 'Im Labyrinth'. This collection, similar in form to Schumann's Album for the Young, contains 21 piano pieces of varying degrees of dificulty. The titles can be understood as romantic miniatures even though they are written in a contemporary musical language.

25/250.orch (2000)
for symphony orchestra (2.2.2(bcl).2/4.2.1.0/timp.perc/8.6.4.4.2)
The regular beat is one initial point of departure, on the one hand side as a reference to the 'Winterthurer Musikfestwochen', a 25 year-young rock and pop festival, and on the other a reference to J.S Bach who died 250 years ago. The second point of departure is the fugal principle, in this instance, however, the fugal theme consists not of single tones but of total structures: clusters, sound surfaces, figures, punctual fields etc..

for symphony orchestra (3.3.3(3bcl).3(3cbcl)/4.3.3(3btbn).1/3perc/min.10.min.8.6.6.4)
This work centres on the pulse and the tension between it and its opposite: sustained tone or sound.
Both poles of the musical process are shaped with a maximum colour and tonal spectrum. A third basic element is brisk, loud walking movements, which fly down unexpectedly like a bolt from the blue.
Commissioned by the ‘Aargauer Kuratorium’ for the ‘Tonhalle-Orchester Zürich’.

Biblische Szene (1989-1991)
for high voice and orchestra (2.2(2obda).2.2/ 2.2.0.0/perc/str)
Texts: Bibel / Liturgie
This piece is based on the story of the healing of the boy in Mark’s gospel. The voice assumes the roles of Jesus, the Father and a chronicler, by singing, whispering, speaking, and humming. Four timpani and nine other percussion instruments (two players) enlarge the classical strings and wind orchestra. In the final section there is a Gregorian credo motive and Beethoven's credo motive from the ‘Missa Solemnis’.

wave trip (2011)
for orchestra (3.2.3.2/2.2.2.0/3perc/10.8.6.6.4)
wave trip is the final piece of a four-part cycle.
Two orchestral pieces frame a violin concert and a piece for solo violin. wave trip refers on the one hand to the first orchestral work, from which mainly gestural elements are extracted and continued. The focus here is on the wave-like continuation gesture of the music. On the other hand, this piece attaches itself to the violin concert and the violin solo, from which sound elements are extracted and further developed in wave trip. The focus here is a central sound which characterises the whole of the violin concert. Two intervals (thirds and quints) are extracted from this sound and used in wave trip as the basis for new development possibilities.
Thus the piece begins with the development of a third, which undergoes lineal absorbtion into a dense mesh of sound texture before re-emerging as a pure third. The fifth sound appears with a preference for the register nuances of the brass section, which is guided mainly by a duet but also once by a quartet.
In the 2nd half of the piece, the strings for example, form a melodic structure comprised mainly of thirds, the vertical sound structure is, however, composed of fifths. Furthermore, veil-like

Fantasia of the Peony Pavilion (2013)
for orchestra (3.3.3.3/4.3.3.1/4perc/hp/14.12.10.8.6)
I can safely say "The Peony Pavilion", a Kun Opera by Tang Xianzu, is the most audacious play in the Chinese opera history for trying to smash the bonds of feudal ethics by glorifying a brave pursuit of love. Picking up the pitch materials from one measure of this opera and the elements of Luogu Jing, a Chinese traditional vocal notation for percussion, I hope this piece would serve as a grand respect for Tang Xianzu through weaving an adventurous but organic fabric of heaven and hell, man and ghost, love and lust, dream and reality, merit and demerit as well as tranquility and bustle, just like a reflection in a mirror.
