“Cheonji” means Heaven and Earth.
This piece of work can be divided into two parts. The first part is a Sanban (a free accented beats in Chinese traditional music), which depicts the vastness of the universe. “Stars shining low above the vast plain, the moon floating over the torrential river”. The second part mainly consists of long and short sentences originating from Korean ballads. The theme of vastness runs throughout the whole piece repeatedly in different forms, bringing the work to a climax. These two parts form a sharp contrast interwoven between all the passages, bringing about huge waves of flux and reflux.
The inspiration received for composing this symphony came from a longing devotion for one’s hometown. The composer hopes to illustrate his beloved hometown by producing this piece of work.
