Chao-Ming Tung on his piano piece "Beten und Hoffen":

"This piano piece is a sound collage consisting of diverse quotations of piano sonatas by Beethoven and a hexatonic melody in a Taiwanese tune. I took out from Beethoven's sonatas the possible fragments, which have the pentatonic character and Asian music expression. The Taiwanese melody accompanies the whole quotations of Beethoven and bridges the two musical cultures of western and eastern. On February 6th 2016, while I was composing this piece, a terrible earthquake occurred in sputh Taiwan adn took 116 lives. This piano piece should memory my dropped countrymen ny this natural catastrophe, prays and hopes for the better harmony between human and nature."
