A Set of Chinese Folk Songs - Eight pieces for solo violin (Sheet music): Zhou Long A Set of Chinese Folk Songs - Eight pieces for solo violin (Sheet music)
Zhou Long
R308 Discovery Miles 3 080 Ships in 12 - 17 working days

for solo violin Conceived as a set, these eight songs are drawn from several Chinese regions (Shaanbei, Shaanxi, Yunnan, Jiangsu, Sichuan, Hunan, and Shanxi) and represent the three main genres of mountain song, work song, and the more structured performance song aimed at professional singers. In this new arrangement for solo violin the music has been carefully refashioned for Western instruments, with writing that includes stylistic bowing and fingering to match the original style. Suitable for students at early to intermediate level, these compelling short pieces are accompanied by illuminating programme notes with a synoposis of each song.

Beijing Drum (Peking Drums) Concerto for PIPA - Paperback (Book, Study score): Zhou Long Beijing Drum (Peking Drums) Concerto for PIPA - Paperback (Book, Study score)
Zhou Long
R861 Discovery Miles 8 610 Ships in 12 - 17 working days

for solo pipa and full orchestra This work was inspired by traditional Chinese Shuo Chang (story-telling) and Jing Yun Da Gu ('Big Drum in Peking Style' - an operatic form that originated around Beijing in the early twentieth century). The solo pipa acts as the narrator, telling the story through the contrast between high, rolling notes and uplifting folk tunes. This concerto is exciting and lively, and it showcases the pipa as a virtuosic solo instrument.

Madame White Snake (Book, Vocal score): Zhou Long Madame White Snake (Book, Vocal score)
Zhou Long
R1,044 Discovery Miles 10 440 Ships in 12 - 17 working days

This opera in four acts is based on an ancient Chinese myth about a snake-shaped spirit that attains human form to experience love. The English libretto by Cerise Lim Jacobs sensitively adapts the story for modern audiences, and Zhou Long's music uses both Western and Chinese sounds to create a pioneering cross-cultural opera. Long was awarded the 2011 Pulitzer Prize for Music for Madame White Snake, and the Pulitzer jury described the work as "a deeply expressive opera that draws on a Chinese folk tale to blend the musical traditions of the East and the West." Madame White Snake was first staged by Opera Boston on 26 February 2010 at the Culter Majestic Theatre, Boston, USA, and received its first Chinese staging at the Beijing International Festival on 10 October 2010, Beijing, China.

Five Elements with Western Instruments - Paperback (Sheet music, Score - sextet version with western instruments): Zhou Long Five Elements with Western Instruments - Paperback (Sheet music, Score - sextet version with western instruments)
Zhou Long
R1,010 Discovery Miles 10 100 Ships in 12 - 17 working days

for flute, clarinet, percussion, piano, violin, and violoncello The concept of the Five Elements was a central aspect of traditional Chinese thought. Here each of the Five Elements is characterised in an individual movement. In the first movement metal is represented by metallic percussion, while in the second movement marimba and claves are used to portray wood. In the third movement a slower and expansive texture is employed to signify water, and rhythmic drumming is used to illustrate the heat of fire, the subject of movement four. A majestic yet peaceful final movement portrays Earth, where all the elements are transformed into a perfect balance.

Postures Concerto for Piano and Orchestra - Paperback (Book, Study score): Zhou Long Postures Concerto for Piano and Orchestra - Paperback (Book, Study score)
Zhou Long
R868 Discovery Miles 8 680 Ships in 12 - 17 working days

for solo piano and full orchestra This work opens with a form of Shaman-dance from North-east China, during which the piano mimics some of the animal postures seen in the art of kung fu. Pianobells, the more lyrical and lightly orchestrated second movement, takes two contrasting bells (Mighty Bells and Frost Bells) as its narrative throughout. The third and final movement, which is intended to represent the Peking Opera Monkey's action, is a wild and intense finale with rapid rhythmic patterns from the percussion. This concerto is exciting, lively, and highlights the piano as a virtuoso percussion instrument.

Zhou Long
R863 Discovery Miles 8 630 Ships in 12 - 17 working days

The Rhyme of Taigu is a lively and powerful work for full orchestra. The piece explores the energy and spirit behind Japanese Taiko, or 'fat drum' (Taigu in Chinese). As a result, the percussion plays a key role, providing an aggressive drive throughout the whole work and often in competition with the brass, particularly in the thrilling climax.

Zhou Long
R115 Discovery Miles 1 150 Ships in 12 - 17 working days

for SATB or upper voices, and orchestra or wind band The Future of Fire is a brief but powerful work. The vibrant scoring creates a feeling of explosive energy from beginning to end with intense bursts from a battery of percussion.

Folk melodies from this region use intervals of a minor seventh these angular leaps are suited to the dynamic spirit of this work. The chorus sings a vocalise based on repeated syllables that are found in Chinese folk songs, as well as many folk songs from around the world.

It then introduces a new large-scale physical attack model coined as area attack, under which a new network robustness measure is introduced and applied to study the network responses. With this book, readers will learn the necessary tools to evaluate how a complex network responds to random and possibly correlated attacks.

R528 Discovery Miles 5 280 Out of stock

for B flat clarinet, percussion (vibraphone & marimba), double bass The meaning of 'Ding' is the perfect concentration of thought into the one object of meditation. Zhou translates this Buddhist concept into concrete musical form by using an abstract-improvisational style and a slow tempo throughout. His thematic elements include a twelve-tone row and a tonal melody, which are treated with a variety of instrumental techniques, including blowing, striking, and bowing the instruments in their full range of pitches. The work combines elements of both Western and Eastern musical traditions.
