Five Songs from the East


Grenfell, M, Five Songs from the East, University of Tasmania, Conservatorium of Music, University of Tasmania, Conservatorium of Music Recital Hall (2012) [Performance]


Five Songs from the East is a composition for pipa and piano that completes a unique research project established by Shan Deng and Maria Grenfell. The aim was to create a set of pieces for pipa (Chinese lute) and piano, based on traditional Chinese folk tunes that would be 're-composed' as new Australian pieces for this relatively unusual combination. The pieces were performed in a lunchtime concert in Hobart on 28 September 2012, and recorded for CD release in 2013. Five Songs from the East was performed by Shan Deng, piano, and Wei Deng, pipa.
