Exploring Chinese Orchestral Repertoire Series #12

Chunquan Qu: Loess Plateau Double Dizi Concerto

Dizi: Mei-Yu Shih, Yujun Huang / Little Giant Chinese Chamber Orchestra / Chih-Sheng Chen, Classical Chamber Music Series – Love of Strings XII / National Recital Hall, Taipei, Taiwan. 2010.4.29.

With horses galloping over the cave dwellings, and the wind swirling up the dry sand, the villagers are labouring beneath the kiln, as this is their beloved place. A duet of Bangdi and Qudi, woven with rich Northwestern flavours – expressing deep feelings and heartfelt melodies, can be heard over the Loess – an expression of love for their homeland by the people of the Yellow Sand Plateau.
