This concert will feature his compositions and traditional music for the pipa.
Works to be performed include Five Seasons for string quartet and pipa, YUAN for saxophone quartet, Parts for Floating Space for saxophone and percussion, Lake for two muted trumpets and traditional Chinese music on pipa.
