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.
