Fenghuang- The phoenix -is a orchestral piece based on some aspects of the Chinese mythology and the Chinese symbolism
This pièce is available on free-scores
The beginning of the piece evokes dualism-
- Phoenix male -female who share the twelve tones of the scale
- – Phoenix -Dragon
The second idea stems from the Yi-king inspiration; it displays a kind of apparent permanence despite internal changes that lead to sudden disruption that may lead to destruction and rebirth from its ash of the phoenix.
Pentatonic scale is an excellent tool to express permanence but is challenging for variations. Color according to the dichromatism principles of the Chinese symbolism is here the adopted solution.
