Shen Yun’s Music Is ‘Absolutely Brilliant’ Musician Says

“I was really pleasantly surprised that how well the Western and Eastern music mix together, the arrangements—they are brilliant. I was just so impressed by the way they involve the original instruments, the Chinese instruments into the core texture of the composition.”

“The erhu, the musician was spectacular.”

“I would say it’s the best kind of program music with authentic sounds that I’ve ever heard.”

“It was absolutely brilliant. I was really impressed from a musician standpoint. Not just the composition, but the quality of the play, very—very good players.”
