Margaret Leng Tan playing Wrong Wrong Wrong at a Present Music concert in Milwaukee.

Ge Gan-ru's Wrong, Wrong, Wrong! is a melodrama for voice and toy orchestra based on a famous poem by Song dynasty poet, Lu You. It is about love lost, sorrow and everlasting regret. Ge Gan-ru composed this Peking opera-inspired piece for Margaret Leng Tan in 2006.




WRONG, WRONG, WRONG! (1155 A.D)
by Lu You

Her hand rosy, tender,
Pours the yellow t'eng wine,
Spring hues adorn the city,
Willows embrace garden walls.
The East Wind malevolent,
Conjugal bliss evanescent.
A heart sorrow-laden,
Cruel years steeped in loneliness asunder.
Oh, wrong, wrong, wrong!

Spring as in days of yore,
So wan and wasted is she,
Rivulets of tears drench her pink kerchief.
Peach blossoms falling,
Stillness pervades pond and pavilion.
Vows immutable as mountains,
Yet how futile a lovelorn epistle.
Ah, woe, woe, woe!

Translation by Vivian Ge and Margaret Leng TanΒ©2006
