Chinese New Year Chamber Music Concert – Adelaide Festival Centre
Celebrate the Year of the Rat at the Adelaide Festival Centre and experience an evocative fusion of traditional Chinese instruments and western music elements performed by talented local musicians.
The repertoire will include uplifting folk songs such as Liu Yang He 瀏陽河; familiar tunes in contemporary contexts such as Gada Meilin 嘎達梅林 featuring erhu and the cello, as well as a jazzed-up Kang Ding Qing Ge 康定情歌, a popular Sichuan song, and Moon and River 小河淌水.
Led by the accomplished Zhao Liang, you will find yourself mesmerised by the beauty of the Chinese harp, ‘Guzheng’, Chinese violin, ‘Erhu’, Chinese flute ‘Dizi’, and the Chinese guitar, ‘Ruan’. Be prepared to be entertained by some incredible percussionists performing with a stage full of Chinese drums.
The School of Chinese Music & Arts will be joined by guest artists including Oriental Flair and BronzeWing Quartet who will highlight beautiful Eastern and Western strings in harmony, as well as San Ureshi, a South Australian oriental jazz ensemble featuring Zhao Liang, David Wei-han Dai and Satomi Ohnishi.
Not to be missed, this concert will take you on a journey to explore the beauty, complexity and variation of cultures from the East to the West.
