The China National Traditional Orchestra, A True Delight!
www.youtube.com
This piece is so beautiful it almost moved me to tears! I thought it was time to spotlight a sample of several Chinese traditional instruments together in action--with some singing! Founded in Beijing in 1960 by the composer Li Huanzhi, the China National Traditional Orchestra is China's largest traditional orchestra. The orchestra, with its choir and ensemble of traditional Chinese instruments, is directed by Chen Xieyang, who has become its permanent conductor. Its repertoire provides a good overview of Chinese traditional music, while taking in influences from contemporary Chinese music, western classical music, and other forms of music from around the world. Since it was first created, the orchestra has been invited to play across the globe. The program from this specific show is as follows: - LIU Xing, "Yunnan Huiyi", Concerto for zhongruan & orchestra - TAN Dun, "Huo Ji", Concerto for erhu & orchestra - LIU Dehai, "Tian E", Concerto for pipa & orchestra - ZHANG Xiaofu, "Yongchun san zhang", Concerto for dizi & orchestra - ZHOU Hang, "Fo Tiao Qiao", for orchestra

@hunahuna @sjeanyoon I'm so happy you all enjoyed it as much as I did!! I've been doing my best trying to find a full performance and more information on the song but I haven't had any luck =( I'm sorry! A lot of videos I find online are in Mandarin and I'm not a speaker. Maybe someone who speaks Chinese could help us =)
