TCO on 2009/05/09: Sarod Meets Chinese Orchestra 2-2

In one night Qiang Zhang & Taipei Chinese Orchestra delivered two pipa concertos. Let’s talk about the Butterfly Lovers' Pipa Concerto in advance. The soloist’s music technique is very good; nevertheless, the Zhu Yingtai is played like Hua Mulan who is hurriedly sending herself in her father’s place in the army. Actually, it is a little disaster, but at last the audience was clapping loudly. Taiwanese is too kind, isn’t?

As for the Little Sisters of the Grassland Pipa Concerto, it is accompanied seamlessly by Amy Chang & TCO and performed greatly by Qiang Zhang! There are five parts of this concerto: tending sheep, fighting with the tempest, processing in the cold night, remembering the people’s kindness & blossom of red flowers, which reminded A-Mao of one event in Taiwan before……
