Ambience (original title: Serenity) started off as a piece for SATB choir a capella, completed in September 2008. Its origins can be traced to an experiment on harmonic progression. After receiving comments that the piece is unsuitable for vocals, I adapted it to a piece for string orchestra (4 violins, 2 violas, 2 cellos, 1 double bass). The strings version received its premiere on 23 April 2010 at Tsuen Wan Town Hall, during my school’s annual concert.
The full score may be downloaded from IMSLP.
