This afternoon, the concert hall rang
not only with melodious solo,
but with most uplifting symphony.
Listen! There comes Flying Dragon, Leaping Tigersand Cooing and Wooing echoes with love.
An art feast is ready to delight our eyes and please our ears.
Traditional Orchestral Ensemble: FlyingDragon, Leaping Tigers
When the conductor raised his baton, the performance began, with drums, urheens and cellos and other instruments in concerto, sending waves of excitement through the audience. The musical notes leaped and danced with rhythm, vividly presenting to our imagination the dragons flying and tigers leaping.
Soprano Solo: wooing
Dressed in white, accompanied on the piano, the soprano poured out affectionately the pain of longing for her beloved and the great joy of eventual realization of the dream.
Chamber Music: The Dream of China
The black and white keys tinkled on the piano, reminding us of the fountain that flowed with a merry gurgle; Chinese ancient zither，Guqin, tranquilize our soul with its typical lightness, cleanness and remoteness conveyed by every note plucked and every string pressed. While Bamboo flute, the cello, the viola, the violin—various musical instruments, interweaved their sounds and performed a fabulous chapter of Chinese dream.
Ukraine Comedy Where the hell have you been
from Sapress by the Danube (апорожець за Дунаєм)
Confronted by his wife’s aggressive questioning, the wronged husband, afterbegging forgiveness repeatedly in vain, said in a fit of pique that he had slept with the chambermaid for two days and two nights. Contradiction thus grew intense, as is shown in the passionate tunes. The performance demonstrated rich alternations of mood.
Bamboo Flute Solo: Swallows Return
His left hand Holding the bamboo flute gently, his right hand dancing on the finger holes briskly and gracefully, the player overwhelmed us with enchanting merry music, in which we saw the swallows twittering between the beams and eagerly celebrated with the player the delight of seeing them return.
