Distinguished Pipa master Zhang Hong-yan together with the Orchestra of Plucked Instruments will make their Australian debut in Tales of the Silk Road in Pipa Concert.

Renowned as “an envoy from the orient and an incomparable music fairy”, Zhang is famous for her sentimental expression with merely a couple of plucks of the strings. With her Pipa, she has performed in the world’s most prestigious concert halls in more than 30 countries. As a reputable music educator, she now takes the posts of professor and master’s supervisor of the China Central Conservatory of Music, the deputy director of the Department of Chinese Folk Music, etc. Zhang is committed to exploring the fusion of Eastern and Western music and unearthing new possibilities of Chinese plucked strings.

And the concert is her answer. Featuring folk songs along the Silk Road, contemporary Chinese music and Western classics variations, the concert will showcase traditional Chinese instruments on a modern stage display to give audience an unforgettable multi-dimensional artistic experience.

There will be two concerts only at Sydney Opera House on Sunday 6 May and Melbourne Recital CENTRE on Tuesday 8 May 2018.
