On the evening of October 13, the opening ceremony and performance of 2023 White Crane Liang Tourism and Culture Festival were held in Fuling District of Chongqing. An octet performance of violin, cello, accordion, Cahun drum, erhu, pipa, bamboo flute and dulchen, "When Chardash Meets Horse Race" attracted the attention of the audience.
The reporter saw at the scene that the eight-piece performance created by the eight instruments on the same stage broke through the boundaries of regions and languages, and made Chinese works and foreign works an innovative integration. What's more interesting is that the performance also incorporated the "dialogue" of the two major instruments, violin and erhu, which brought a different surprise to the audience.
Chardash is one of the famous violin pieces by Italian violinist and composer Vittorio Monti, which has been adapted for solo and ensemble work on various instruments such as accordion. "Horse Racing" is a famous solo Erhu song created by Chinese contemporary erhu artist Huang Haihuai.
