Lin Zhu: Dance of Light and Shadow

Little Giant Chinese Chamber Orchestra, Tien-Ku Percussion Group / Chih-Sheng Chen / National Concert Hall, Taipei, Taiwan 2019.8.28

Dance of Light and Shadow is written for Chinese orchestra. This dynamic work is woven together with fluid lines and driving rhythms. The modulations of the colourful themes from the different orchestral sections create an energetic scene contrasting light and shadow. The use of plucked instruments highlight the characteristics and charm of the Chinese orchestra.
