Behind the IX Grand Chinese New Year Concert
The Tradition of Chinese Music
What is behind the unique sound of a Chinese orchestra? What do Chinese musicians think about their musical tradition? How do the cities from where these musicians come from look like? Who made those extraordinary instruments? The cameras of the Swiss Television followed Ma Lin, one of the players of the Zhejiang's traditional orchestra, during one day in order to give an answer to all these questions.
In 2007, on the occasion of the 10th Anniversary of the Grand Chinese New Year Concert, the Chinese Traditional Orchestra of Zhejiang was selected to tour in The Netherlands, Germany, Denmark, Sweden, Finland and Russia.
