“I thought it was beautiful. Absolutely beautifully done.”
“That’s what I loved about it [combination of Chinese and Western instruments]. I love the traditional Chinese instruments, especially the erhu — the 2-stringed instrument — was beautiful, and that woman [erhu soloist] was amazing! We sometimes use that instrument in scores that I work on in movies, and I always love hearing it.”
“Specifically, [the music] made it feel like it was more culturally authentic than most score music I hear.”
“I didn’t realize there was a deeper meaning to it, and it was really nice to experience the deeper meaning. It was a nice surprise, … the message and the relevance that was behind it all, and the cultural significance that was represented.”
“I absolutely would [recommend the performance] because I think there is a lot more to it than I realized. We’ll be back next year. I’ll bring some more kids with me.”
“It is [good for children to experience]. And it’s rare to have it done this well and this authentically, so I’m glad to expose them to [traditional culture], especially in Los Angeles, where it’s hard [to find].
