Time and Wine-Art Song by Li Tai-Hsiang (歲月與酒-李泰祥)

I.    Lyrics (translated from Chinese)

That is a memory that is hidden in the heart. Like a jar of wine buried in a cellar.
It is so old that a tag is required to be covered on the mouth of bottle.
Have a sip, it is mellow and strong. Is it the years or wine?
Is it actually years or wine? That is a jar of wine that is buried in a cellar.
Like a memory that is hidden in the heart. The settled sadness. The sealed joy.
Think, a little dizzy.
Is it because I am drunk without drinking? Or is it because I am afraid to look back?
Is it the wine or the years? Is it the years or the wine?

Lyrics written by Chung Li-Chih (鍾籬之)

那是一段藏在心中的記憶 像一罈埋在地窖裡的酒
古老的標籤 塵封在瓶口
喝一喝醇濃而烈 到底是歲月還是酒
到底是酒還是歲月 那是一罈埋在地窖裡的酒
像是一段藏在心中的記憶 沉澱的悲傷 密封的愉悅
到底是不飲自醉 還是回首情怯
到底是酒還是歲月 到底是歲月還是酒

Chi Yu (齊豫)


II.    About this Song

Exposition of the music:
The music was composed from Chung Li-Chih’s poetry. By this music, Li Tai-Hsiang won the Excellent Arrangement Award of the Golden Tripod Award conferred by the Government Information Office in 1987.
The music describes the mourning of the past age; it is hard to sing the song. Not only does it have leaping pitch intervals, performer must also appropriately control the tone of each musical sentence, so the song profoundly challenges performer’s interpretation ability. Accompanied with string quartet and piano, the music starts from low and mysterious stringed music rhythm and then goes with vocal and solos of all different musical instruments to interlace into a beautiful melody.
