Metamorphosis III by CHONG Kee Yong published on 2018-03-22T08:33:54Z 變形之三 為鋼琴獨奏而作 Metamorphosis III for piano solo Composed: 2001 Dedication: Prof. Jan Michiels Venue: Mozarteum Concert hall (Salzburg, Austria) 1st performed by: The participants of the “8th International Mozart Competition 2002, Salzburg, AUSTRIA” Recorded by: Amy Lin * 2nd prize in the “8th International Mozart Competition, Salzburg, AUSTRIA” ** Score is published by Universal Edition. “Metamorphosis III” (2001) This piece is a metamorphosis of my piano solo piece “ Battarie”. “Metamorphosis III’ conveys my derivation of idea on my own composition. The main musical idea remains -- which are to express the beauty of the acoustic sound space after each time hitting or striking something, the resonance was always prepared by each attack and without realizing we are surrounded by this silence “sound”. It is more than just a variation; it is a sublimation or mutation from the same musical idea or emotional condition evident in the previous composition. “Metamorphosis III” proceeds from the percussions to the piano playing not only percussively, but also expressing the metamorphosis of the subtle melody, dynamic, gesture and spacial acoustics of the percussions! I am most grateful to Prof. Jan Michiels for his collaboration, and especially for his advise on pianistic writing.
