Noir for Orchestra (2005) 

2005 Centre Acanthes Festival 

BaltimoreSunLogo.png

"...Noir by Chinese-born composer Fang Man. Her well-crafted score, receiving its  U.S. premiere in this concert, is launched by deep rumblings in the orchestra, later punctuated by jazzy flashes of brass and percussion, and finally brought to a galloping, thunderous close. It all added up last night to a concise, involving little  drama in a spicy harmonic language that seemed to keep the players thoroughly involved."

 Tim Smith, The Baltimore Sun

Aqua In Memoriam Toru Takemitsu for Large Orchestra (2003-4)

2007 Toru Takemitzu Award

"The work by Man Fang, who lives in the United States, is an elegant writer and  stands out with fresh sensibility." In commenting her work AQUA, "This is an  outstanding piece. In employing transforming sound waves to create a landscape of  light and water, it offered a superb unity. The second movement, "AQUA," was  fascinating to me. The third movement, although short, had poetic emotional  expression and was also very impressive."

 Akira Nishimura, Composer,

Judge of the Toru Takemitsu Award 2007
