Northern Lights was commissioned by The Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center, La Jolla Music Society, and Bergen Festival by a generous gift from William Ginsberg in honor of his wife, Inger G. Ginsberg. It was finished on December 28th, 2009, in New York City.

"In many ways, composing music in various styles is similar to a writer using different languages; and the work is usually most effective when the author is most comfortable with the language. On the other hand, for a range of reasons, many literary giants attempted their second (or even third) language to great results. Northern Lights is my first attempt to integrate Norwegian/Scandinavian folk music; and it probably has a linguistic accent. However, as a student who is embarking his first performance with a newly-learned language, I am fully excited with the probability of including another tongue in my works.

The title of the work, Northern Lights, refers to an astronomical natural phenomenon also known as polar lights (aurora polaris), which are shafts or curtains of fantastically colored light visible on occasion in the night sky, particularly in countries of the polar regions, such as Norway.~ Bright Sheng, Composer
