The 3rd Edition of Ding Yi Chinese Chamber Music Festival is taking place from 5 to 8 August 2017 at the Esplanade Recital Studio. This year’s festival promises dynamic performances from a stellar array of local and international Chinese chamber music ensembles.
The Taipei Liuqin Ensemble was formed with the intention to feature the liuqin – a petite plucked-string instrument known for its bright and penetrating tone – and its cousin instrument, the ruan.
The ensemble has performed extensively in Taiwan and internationally, receiving rave reviews. Their repertoire for this concert will include important compositions for the liuqin, such as Su Wen-Cheng’s ‘The Garden After Rain’ – a popular concerto demanding both great virtuosity and expressiveness.
