Loess Plateau Double Dizi Concerto

黄土情

窯上的馬兒奔馳而過,黃沙揚起乾燥的風,窖下的人兒勤工作,只因這是我們最摯愛的城堡。一曲梆笛和曲笛在黃主高坡上的對唱,在濃郁的西北風味中,我們探見高亢而豪放的情懷,我們感受委婉而深沈的旋律,這正是黃土人民對家鄉的深情演出。

QU Chunquan, Loess Plateau Double Dizi Concerto, SHI Meiyu and HUANG Yujun with the Little Giant Chinese Chamber Orchestra, Classical Chamber Music Series – Love of Strings XII, conducted by Dr. CHEN Chih-Sheng, National Recital Hall, Taipei, Taiwan, April 29, 2010.

With horses galloping over the cave dwellings, and the wind swirling up the dry sand, the villagers are labouring beneath the kiln, as this is their beloved place. A duet of Bangdi and Qudi, woven with rich Northwestern flavours – expressing deep feelings and heartfelt melodies, can be heard over the Loess – an expression of love for their homeland by the people of the Yellow Sand Plateau.
