The concert kicked off with the Erhu Concerto "Thinking About Autumn", which describes the modern revolutionary heroine Qiu Jin, followed by "The Third Erhu Concerto - The Soul of Poetry", which describes the talented but underappreciated Tang Dynasty poet Li Bai; "Tian Lai Hua Yin" by Liu Tianhua, the originator and master of modern folk music; and "The Fourth Erhu Concerto - Love, Hate, Love and Hate", which tells the story of Cai Wenji, a female literati in the Eastern Han Dynasty. These works not only use abstract musical language to describe the life conditions of literati in different eras, but also express their sincere desire for the prosperity and development of the motherland through sometimes deep and sometimes high-pitched melodies, showing the lofty aspirations of national righteous men.

Since his student days, Ma Ke has actively participated in various artistic practice performances. The many solo concerts he has held have received enthusiastic responses, and the industry and the audience have given them high praise. As CCTV's new top ten erhu performers, Ma Ke has Whether it is the dignified and atmospheric artistic temperament or the skilled and superb performance skills, they are the best representatives of the new ten erhu people. This concert is a very big test for her. It not only requires the performers to have a strong ability to grasp the connotations and emotions of different pieces of music and to switch quickly. At the same time, all the pieces were performed standing up, and there was almost no rest time in the middle of the pieces, and her physical requirements were also very high. It is worth mentioning that in the second half of the "Erhu Concerto No. 4 - Love, Hate, Love and Hate", the erhu is played with octave tuning. This special tuning form is created by the composer adopting the tuning method of the traditional erhu work "Dan Yue" and combining the elements of national music with modern composition techniques. It not only brings greater artistic expression to the erhu, but also expands the technical skills of erhu performance, and is a new attempt and exploration for the performer.
