Enjoy an elegant strings recital performed by Singapore Chinese Orchestra musicians Zhou Ruo Yu, on erhu and Ma Huan, on yangqin. The erhu, a two-stringed instrument of the huqin (Chinese fiddle) family, is widely used in many genres of music due to its versatility and expressive qualities. The yangqin is a Chinese hammered dulcimer (struck-string instrument) which is played by striking the sets of strings with two lightweight bamboo beaters (also known as hammers) with rubber tips.

Presented in the recital are various solo and ensemble pieces such as Liu Tian Hua’s erhu composition Melody on One String; Xiang Zu Hua’s Night Escape of Lin Chong, a musical tribute to the hero of Mount Liang, as well as Tan Dun’s Poem in Two Parts which depicts a celebration of a good hunt.

In collaboration with Singapore Chinese Orchestra.
