Quick Overview

Prolific composer Chen Yi began her musical career as a violinist, and she has now written a performance piece for the violin student, in loving tribute to her native Beijing. The violin's part in From Old Peking Folklore imitates the fingering, bowing, style, and spirit of traditional Chinese music and instruments, and is orchestrated in such a way that the duet sounds like Jing Yun Da Gu, the folk music of her home area. Commissioned by the Music Teachers Association of California as a competition piece. For advanced players. Duration: 5'
