The cantata Nanjing Lament was originally composed for piano, alto and chorus when commissioned for the
sixtieth anniversary of the occupation of the city of Nanjing by the Japanese. That original version had its premiere at a Concert for Peace on December 7, 1997 at Carnegie Hall in New York. The Chinese National Symphony commissioned Jin to rewrite the cantata for full orchestra. The new version was scored for orchestra, pipa, dizi, children's chorus and regular chorus. It is this version that is presented here.
