This is a 5 minutes long composition for solo piano. It is based on a traditional theme " Meditation in Autumn by Dressing Table " used in the Cantonese Opera PRINCESS CHEUNG PING. Hong Kong born Australian composer Scott Lam used the piano to imitate the Chinese instrument Zheng and evoke the Cantonese musical idiom. The piece is filled with some modern playing techniques such as many black key glissandi and clusters in Henry Cowell's style. It concludes with an almost Lisztian Bravura passage.
