The origins of Chinese music can be dated back to distant antiquity.
According to legends, the founder of music in Chinese mythology was Ling Lun at the time of the Yellow Emperor (2698 to 2598 BC), who made bamboo pipes tuned to the sounds of birds including the phoenix. During the period, drums and string instruments were also created.
“The orchestra is phenomenal. They are very, very on top! I found myself listening inside the orchestra to different instruments that were new to me. Very interesting and brought a lot of character to the score.”
“A different sensuality and a power of expression... It comes from the heart and it goes to the heart.”
“It was moving, it was satisfying, it was novel, it was unpredictable. It was a completely satisfying artistic experience from every standpoint.”
“We certainly felt China’s soul this afternoon!”
