This composition was written in tribute to the passing of Dr. Chen Yi’s violin professor, Professor Lin YaoJi.
“Dear Professor Lin: I wish you could hear the tune in Memory, which sounds like my painful cry out of your name in our Cantonese dialect. I expressed my deep sorrow in the music, to remember your fatherly mentorship. Your meaningful smile will always be with us encouragingly.” — Chen Yi
I hope I did it justice.
