Violin Concerto Butterfly Lover 梁祝 Lu Si-qing
As I have spoken of in the past, the music of China has had a dramatic impact on me as a composer. Of all the songs to come from this nation, this is my favorite. The arrangement has been done in many different forms, but I like melody and harmony against the backdrop against the soaring instrumentation of the symphony orchestra. The first time I ever heard this piece, back in my freshman year of college, I cried. No joke, it brought that kind of emotion out of me. Enjoy.
