Description
Springs in the Forest is considered a milestone in contemporary Chinese composition for zheng. It carries the beauty and inner nature of Chinese classical music while blending the techniques and aesthetics of contemporary music, and is one of the most outstanding solo zheng pieces since Fight to Typhoon (a popular piece from the seventies). The work combines a challenging technique with a fresh melodic line, rich and varied rhythmic patterns, and layered timbres, while maintaining a fresh aesthetic vision at same time. This piece has been well-received and praised by the public, and is suited for both refined and popular audiences. It won the Golden (first) Prize in China's Fifth Golden Bell Competition for composition in 2005.
