Shen Yun’s Erhu Elicits So Many Different Moods

February 27, 2017

“The magnificent dancing, the synchronicity, the fact they were always together. Everything, there was nobody ever off. They were always right on cue, and the balance exhibited … it was just fabulous.”

“They have a lot of capitalistic things [in China], but yet they’re primarily still a communist society, and it’s very restrictive, and you couldn’t ask me questions about the United States there.”

“[The erhu] is very touching, lots of different moods, could have been slow, and then there was a part where she was kind of bouncing along, it could be joyful and upbeat, but it expressed so many different moods. It was tremendous—I love that probably almost as much as anything … That was a wonderful performance.”
