Wu, Li-Ying: SHADOWS 

 

 

Basic information

 

Notes

  • Program notes: 

    The sheng and the accordion are related; they both create sound through air passing metallic reeds. The sheng was invented thousands of years before the accordion, and the Chinese sheng can be seen as the ”grandfather” of the European modern accordion. In “Shadows”, the two instruments follow each other like shadows; a shadow, which through music reaches over continents and centuries.
