  • This music was written for entry into the Leibniz's Harmonies International Composition Competition in 2016 in Hanover, Germany. With regret I was unable to send the score to Hanover, Germany to meet the competition deadline, nor could afford the expense of express mail. I selected the pipa as the solo instrument because of the five fingered tremolos common to its practice. Seven Figs represents my joy and love for international music. It is my first attempt at writing for pipa and I hope I have done for its beautiful history no offense, and have created perform-able music for the instrument.
