In western legends, the swan sings the most moving song as it is dying. With its graceful image and pure white feathers, the swan has inspired many music compositions. In Saint-Saën's ‘Swan’ from “The Carnival of the Animals", the cello floats gracefully as a swan on top the rippling accompaniment, and eventually lowers its head to rest in nature. Tchaikovsky's classical ballet "Swan Lake" has become the alternative name for white ballet music - the swan’s pure white image elevates the dance and music into an innocent fairytale. On the other hand, Sibelius’ ‘Swan of Tounela’ depicts a black swan swimming merrily in the rivers of hell as the English horn slowing sings the song of death.

Orchestral piece "Dancing Crane the Internal Landscapes" is Tsung-hsien Yang’s new piece commissioned by NTSO “Symphonic Taiwan” project. The whole composition includes seven parts which are all inspired by the works of writer Wuhe. Each piece expresses a diverse array of imagery and emotions related to Taiwan.
