He Zhanghao & Chen Gang: Butterfly Love

From Music Alive, 7:00 pm on 22 December 2017

Butterfly Love uses a famous love story as a theme, adopting a wealth of opera music performance practices, combined with the Western genre of the concerto. The use of charming melodies, lively music images, strong ethnic style, and distinctive local characteristics, made this work deeply rooted in people's hearts. The use of folk materials of China's minority nationalities was extremely popular among Chinese composers during 1960-1980.
