« Autumn moon over a calm lake » – This beautiful piece marvelously performed by Liu Fang at a solo concert in Venice, at the Teatro Fondamenta Nuove di Venezia in 2011, thanks to the presentation of The Intercultural Institute of Comparative Music Studies, in collaboration with the Confucius Institute of Venice, University Ca ‘Foscari of Venice, and the European Foundation for Chinese Music Research (CHIME).

About the music:
Autumn moon over a calm lake (平湖秋月)– Composed by Lu Wencheng (1898-1981) based on a folk melody from Zhejiang Province, however in a traditional Cantonese music style. The inspiration was from the beautiful Xihu (The West Lake) near Hangzhou (capital of Xhejiang). The music is soothing and relaxing with a sense quiet happiness, depicting the soft breeze blowing over the calm lake in the evening with threes branches swinging gently on the lake shore and the lotus flowers floating on the lake.

Musique classique chinoise: Lune d’automne sur un lac calme – L’un des plus célèbres airs traditionnelles de la province de Guangdong, cette pièce est composée par Lu Wenchang, décrivant la belle scène de la nature et de l’humeur régénérée.

刘芳古筝独奏《平湖秋月》,2011年威尼斯音乐会。

1974年出生於昆明的劉芳,六歲開始學琵琶,九歲正式登台演奏。在上海音樂院期間開始學習古箏,1986年更在伊莉莎白女王造訪大陸時為她獻藝,1996年移居加拿大,是一位同時精擅琵琶與古箏的演奏家。劉芳出眾的演奏生動感人,音樂表現力和精妙的技巧更是令人嘆為觀止。尤其是她與琵琶之間似乎已達水乳交融、人琴合一的境界,是當今國際樂壇上最優秀的演奏家之一。(http://www.philmultic.com/Chinese/ind…

Ajoutée le 3 oct. 2013

So far the only 36 stringed zheng, Taiwanese made long zither in the world. Great innovation it was about time this was invented(?), innovated at least, because this is my first time improvising on one this grand of a size! Grateful to the luthier and to Sonia Liu of Vancouver’s « Crystal Gu-zheng Centre » for allowing me this great honour to share.
