Fung: Pizzicato for String Orchestra
Composer: Vivian Fung
Conductor: Barbara Day Turner
Recording Date: Sun 9 Dec 2001
Pizzicato is a short work for string orchestra, the duration of which the players never use their bows. The central sound produced is that of plucked strings as well a few surprises in the middle and towards the end of the work. Inspired by listening to Asian folk music, the piece is influenced partly by the music of the Chinese plucked instruments pipa and qin as well as by the energetic rhythms of Indonesian gamelan. The string quartet version of Pizzicato has been recorded by the Ying Quartet on the Telarc label and is also available as a download on iTunes and Amazon.com.
