Like an imperial banquet, Dowager Sheng is Just! is a sumptuous array of tasty morsels. This is the tempered feast of a widowed empress, however: the emphasis is not on devouring every known delicacy, but savouring a few ingredients virtuosically recast in many dishes. True, there are elements of bawdy bacchanalia, but no crowd of merry-makers, only the private contentment of pleasures long enjoyed. All the intensity of sensation privilege provides in an intimate setting!
Instrumentation: Violin, piano.
Dedication note: Dedicated to Seamus McNamara
