Program Note:

Symphony No.1 is Wang Jie’s most personal work: a journey from yearning and tempest to peace.

A poem was written at the same time Wang Jie was working on the Symphony, thus the subtitle:





On the night of Carnival,

Our fragmented hearts met.


By the time truth inflames the wound

And you reach out to truth I discover,

I have been drawn to you.


By what brings us to ache,

Not what we celebrate.


–Wang Jie
