World premiere of "Red Moon", performed by the National Symphony Orchestra (NSO) at the National Concert Hall, Taipei, Taiwan on April 24, 2010 with Günther Herbig conducting.



"Red Moon" won the first NSO Call for Score and was selected as part of the repertoire in Maestro Herbig's International Conducting Workshop, April 5-11, 2010. This piece was inspired by the Chinese legend of lunar eclipse: "The Flying Dog Ate the Moon." According to legend, Mu-Lian (Maudgalyayana) was one of Buddha's favorite disciples. He was very kind and obedient to his mother. But his mother was an evil person. When she died, the Jade Emperor in heaven turned her into a dog and sent her to hell. Mu-Lian used his tin staff to break open the gate of hell and freed his mother. But his mother sought revenge and flew to heaven. Unable to find the Jade Emperor, the flying dog ate the moon and the sun, turning the world to complete darkness. The piece consists of three parts: 1) Mu-Lian breaking the gate of hell, 2) the escape of the flying dog, and 3) the flying dog eating the moon.
