The dialogue of  zither and strings reflects the encounter between the two cultures that shaped the artist, classical pianist and zither . For the first time ever the melodies intermingle in sometimes light and playful creations, often profound and meditative . Each work has its own history . An exceptional journey …

About the tracks

 

Complaints to the Sky in the Falling Dust (Khóc Hoàng Thiên), School of the Theatre music-icons

A pretty young girl takes a walk in the gardens of her residence. Dust settles, and she looks at the many colors of the sky, thinking of the person she saw at the Flower Festival, a handsome young man on his magnificent horse, barely older than herself. She complains to the Sky that she may not be able to see him again, and dreams of finding herself in his arms on the beautiful white horse, its hooves in rhythm with her thoughts.

 

Autumn Moon Lullaby (Trăng Thu Dạ Khúc), School of the South music-icons

It is late, and the night silent, except for the wind gently caressing the bamboo leaves from the garden in front of the pavilion. The full moon, its silky light tinted with silver caress the curves of a young mother’s stunning beauty, holding an infant in her arms. Her husband is far away and will not return until the following season. The young woman looks at her child and begins to sing a sad lullaby.

 

Waterdrops ( Lưu Thủy Đoản ), School of the Northmusic-icons

A small stream flows slowly, the water gently overriding stones and pebbles lying on the bottom. It is raining lightly but steadily, the raindrops forming small bubbles on the surface of the water, sign that the rain will not stop anytime soon.

 

Emperor (Ái Từ Kê), Imperial School music-icons

This is the third part of a series of eight pieces from the Imperial School. One hundred musicians precede the arrival of the Emperor, creating joy over the people. The Emperor steps down from his palanquin carried by sixteen bearers, guarded by six eunuchs in full ceremonial dress. He appears before the people, a solemn and rare moment. His subjects hold their breaths, eyes on the ground, since one may never look at the Son of Heaven. The Emperor advances majestically towards the Temple of Heaven, where he will perform his duties as Sovereign. Once inside the Temple, the people burst with joy again, mingling with the Dance of Dragons and Tigers.
