      Program Notes:
      Kai Lin: Trio No. 1 for flute, horn, and cello (1995) This piece reveals a consolidation of Western and non-Western influence. The musical form is Introduction-A-B-A-Coda. In the introduction section, there is free twelve-tone writing. In the first half of A, Chinese Folk music influence appears in melodic writing, and the accompanying part is a variation of ostinato. In the second half of A, the pitch organization consists of eleven tones that are derived from the materials of the introduction, and the twelfth note D, only appears in the last four measures of this section. Section B is polyphonic using a complete twelve-tone series. In the beginning of the recapitulation of A, the horn uses eight notes in the middle register, the cello consists of the fast-running sixteenth notes from the low to high range, and the flue also uses the fast-funning notes but inverted from high to low range. The recapitulation include additional development. In the coda, the materials from the introduction and section A are combined.

    4. Arches Op. 4 for Orchestra, Kai Lin:
      The arch concept is presented in different elements of music such as rhythm, structure, range and dynamics, In the beginning of the introduction, a dreamy motive derived from the first two notes of the object of the exposition appears in the percussion. When the strings enter, there is an alignment of rhythmic and dynamic arches with each entrance introducing a new note in the opening harmonic structure. Harmonies from the introduction are then combined with new material to form long sustained polychords in the exposition. In the development, there are compound harmonies of the introduction and development of the subject and object. Variations of the object and subject are combined in the short recapitulation. The alignment of arches from the introduction is repeated in the coda, however, it is in retrograde (backwards).
