プログラムノート&プロフィール
    Changwon Park / Spur… for Brass Quintet (2003)
    Spur consists of seven little pieces of components. Each component has different motivic movements, which represent acoustic vestiges of brass quintet in various spaces. The last parts of the components vanish with the resonating sounding of vestiges of micro-tones.

    Ho Shan-shan / Space - Colour (2005)
    This piece is divided into two movements. The first movement is called Space. The composer arranges the alternative appearance of a rapid, rhythmic pattern and a long, sustained chromatic pattern. An even chromatic figure on the trombone and horn introduces the second half, fast section. This figure modifies and tightens the music to suggest the climax at the end.
    The second movement is called Colour. This is a slow movement with more chromatic harmony treatment. The music suggests a slow flowing motion.

    藤井 喬梓 / 天体舞踊説 (2005)

    東洋の舞踊によく見られるゆっくり旋回するような動き、それは大自然のサイクルを反映しているように見える。私たちの日常の動作が自然のサイクルと共振したとき、私たちの内部で舞踊が始る。心と身体がゆっくりと旋回し始める。一回、二回、三回、だんだん速く、耐えられないほど速く・・ぐるぐるぐる。その時人は、宇宙が天体の舞踊で満ちていることに気付くだろう。 2005年夏、Brass Extreme Tokyoの委嘱により作曲。

    Fiona Chung / Fanfare for the Mongolians

    Christopher Coleman / Politics, Money, Music (2005)
    It has often been my habit to compose works in pairs, putting similar materials and techniques to contrasting gestures. Having just completed a large work for band that in spite of its title, A Jazz Funeral, is an optimistic celebration of life, I turned to this commission for Extreme Brass Tokyo from the Hong Kong Composers’ Guild. Inspired by the group’s name, I took the jazzy rhythms and inflections from the previous work and put them to darker and quite a bit more virtuosic use. Frustrated and angered by what I perceive as broken promises, outright lies, and other evil machinations by my government in the US, the government here in Hong Kong and China, and even within my profession, I gave vent to my feelings in this, my darkest piece yet. Politics, Money, Music develops a twisting chromatic figure throughout its nine-minute length, obsessively reorganizing the pitches repeatedly, beginning with melodic bursts and sequences that are brutally cut short by stabbing syncopations, and finally works its way to a quieter but still unsettled conclusion.

    Christopher Coleman (b.1958)
    composer, conductor and trombonist, is currently Composition Coordinator of the Hong Kong Baptist University Department of Music and Fine Arts. He has also taught at the University of Chicago, DePaul University, Columbia College, and in the Interlochen Center for the Arts summer programme. He earned his Ph.

While at the University of Pennsylvania, where he earned the M.A. in composition, he studied with George Crumb, George Rochberg and Richard Wernick, among others. While most of Coleman’s works are scored for traditional forces, recent efforts at Hong Kong Baptist University have resulted in two large scale multi-media/improvisation pieces: September Variations and Prophecies for a New Millennium. He has received commissions from the Hong Kong Bach Choir and Orchestra, the Hong Kong Composers’ Guild, the DuPage Symphony Orchestra, the Chicago-area chapter of the American String Teachers’ Association, and the University of Georgia Trombone Choir, among others. He has been awarded first place in the Percussive Arts Society Percussion Ensemble Composition Contest and the ASUC/SESAC Composition Contest. Following in the path of his father, visual artist Oliver M. Coleman, Jr., Christopher Coleman has recently begun working in sculpture and computer graphics.
    Tang Man-ngai / Requiem- In Memory of Pope John Paul II (2005) for two trumpets in C, French horn, trombone and tuba
    Requiem is written in memory of Pope John Paul II whom the composer respects highly of his fervent belief in peace and high standard of morality. An interlocking texture that gently pushes the music forward supports the dense harmonic rhythm that contributes to the heavy atmosphere at the beginning of the piece. A duet leads into the second section which then develops into animated exchanges within the ensemble. In the last section a merger of themes from previous sections builds up the climax. A chorale-like codetta concludes the music.
