La Serenata
for string quartet
Composer: Pang Kwan (February 2020)
ca. 7’10”

(Audio only)

This piece was selected for performance by the Cong Quartet at the Lee Hysan Concert Hall of the Chinese University of Hong Kong (CUHK) on 10 June 2020, for the concert of Ensemble-in-Residence Program (2019–2020) of the Department of Music of CUHK.

PROGRAMME NOTE

This piece was written as an impression to serenade, a musical genre intended for evening performance historically. This piece is an exploration of timbres through the use of certain extended techniques for strings. The music began with a light atmosphere. It gradually became unsettling in the middle, but soon resolved back into the familiar main theme near the end of the piece.

The music depicted a reflective evening mood and reminiscences of the past.
