Two years ago I started learning Yangqin, a Chinese dulcimer that maybe to your surprise incredible instrument. Its incredibly versatile, beautiful and virtuosic. I study with renown professor from shanghai conservatory. Last year I got the chance to perform with her and the DunHuang Chamber Ensemble (incredible ladies and musicians). Although I was performing the Yangqin for this special performance my teacher wanted to being a western instrument into the mix (me and my flute). This first song is " The Colourful Clouds Chasing the Moon". Although its very simple, it is one of the most famous traditional chinese tunes. My Asian friends (show this to your parents) they'll like "yaaasss" (I hope). Please enjoy this snippet of it here and you can find the full performance on YouTube: https://youtu.be/J9clmfM9xz4
兩年前我開始學習揚琴. 我和上海音乐学院的教授和師傅(郭敏清)一起學揚琴. 去年我有機會同她和敦煌室樂團表演在多倫多. 雖然在表現到我彈揚琴, 郭老師想要我用西洋氣長笛同中國音樂儀器合作. 我很高興我可以分享我的表現的 "彩雲追月" 和 "旱天雷".
