Pianist-Composer Amazed by Perfect Harmony of Shen Yun’s Music

“I love the music. … I’m watching the synchronization and I’m amazed by that. I’m very happy to be here.”

“What amazes me is that there is an essentially perfect combination of traditional Chinese music and [Western] music. It’s very difficult to do, to achieve, because often some instruments do not go well together. But in this case, the director, those that made the arrangements, have accomplished a near-perfect marriage of these instruments. That’s impressive.”

“The scale difference [between Chinese and Western music], that’s another issue. I don’t know how they solved it, but they found ways to have a perfect harmony. ”
