Description

The title of the piece refers to the Agama, a fundamental holy scripture of early Buddhism. The young composer says about it: 'The basic ideas of these writings were a source of my inspiration. The compositional material corresponds to my own musical language and is strongly linked to the spirit and concept of these Buddhist writings.'
The result is a very lively and spirited interplay of the musical passages among the different instruments. The piece is a harmonious blend of Chinese contemporary music and distinct reminiscences of tradition.
