Sunday, August 24, 2014 - 11:00pm

Tune in to this week IAL show as we will be looking at chinese classical music through several orchestral pieces. Chinese classical music draws its roots in the music played in royal courts using specific instruments such as the Yangquin or the Shen. Chinese classical music re-emerged in the 20th century after taking on the structure of the Western Orchestra. Most of the pieces evoque a story, often linked to folkolric legends or narrating major historical events.
