John Oliver: Monkey Running (world premiere)

Little Giant Chinese Chamber Orchestra / Chih-Sheng Chen / National Recital Hall, Taipei, Taiwan 2014.11.18.

An original sketch for this composition was created in 2004 as a commission from the Vancouver Chinese Music Ensemble. My heartfelt thanks to Jin Zhang and Mei Han for erhu and zheng lessons, and to Chih-Sheng Chen for conducting the premiere of this version with his Little Giant Chinese Orchestra (Taiwan).
