    Hello I listened to a contrabass trio for a song you arranged
    Is it possible to find the scores?

    Dear Wang,

    my name is Martino and I’m a composer and saxophonist. I was researching into music for Bass flute and found your Qi 氣 for Bass Flute and Percussion.
    I truly love it and would like to ask you if you have it published for me to buy it as I would like to analyse the instrument itself and I think this score is really well worth studying.

    My email is in case you can get back to me.

    Wish you all the best,
