Breath of Spring explores the multifaceted nature of spring — from the quietly sprouting seeds to the splendid vistas of blooming flowers, and the revived vitality of animals. This piece is composed for a percussion quartet, where the interaction among the four musicians not only reflects the interplay of various life forms in nature but also symbolizes the perpetual cycle of life that spring brings. This composition, while expressing the essence of spring, also serves as a reminder for people to cherish this delicate beauty and to embrace the new season with emotion and anticipation.
