Cue of the Week: “Peaceful Times”
This week I’m happy to share an excerpt from Identity: Zhongshan Zhuang, my concerto for guzheng and orchestra which was released this week by Hanyi.
The concerto is what’s sometimes called “program music”, meaning that it corresponds to a story, similarly to how a film score accompanies a movie. This excerpt, near the opening of the first movement, evokes pastoral pre-war times in the Chinese countryside.
The full album, which also contains several solo guzheng pieces, is available from most online music retailers, including iTunes and Amazon.

Another “must have” Mike! Beautiful, Love it.
