Prog. notes: he Mountain Sprite – for soprano and electroaucostic music was inspired by the work of the great poet Qu Yuan (340-278 BC) of the ancient Chu state in the southern China. A monodrama of the lovesick “goddess of mountain” who was thinking of worldly pleasures and adoring her mortal lover, this poem was sung in rites dedicated to gods and goddesses, and it is noted mostly for its romanticism which was very avant-garde 2300 years ago. The music is expressive of poetic femininely imagination. Soprano speaking voice and falsetto voice, etc. in traditional Chinese drama music are used in the vocal part of this piece to achieve a specific epic-romance style.
