Spanning for more than half a century, Mr. Liu Chong Zeng’s music journey has brought him both around China, as well as 26 different countries. A master of many trades, he was educated by countless luminaries from a young age, having learnt various huqin from Liu Ming Yuan, music theory from Fan Zu Yin, ethnomusicology from Du Ya Xiong, and ethnic huqins from countless folk artists.
 

Held in celebration of Mr Liu’s 80th birthday, this concert is a huqin kaleidoscope that must not be missed. Showcasing a dazzling array of twelve different huqins, not only will conventional instruments such as the erhu, banhu, and jinghu be showcased, rare ethnic huqins such as the xiqin, maguhu, and ghijak will make an appearance as well. A one of a kind performance, let us embark on a musical journey throughout China, and relive Mr Liu Chong Zeng’s astounding journey together.

Soloist, Liu Chong Zeng

A China National First Class Huqin Musician, Liu Chong Zeng was the former concertmaster of the Central Ethnic Song and Dance Troupe in Beijing, and is currently an executive member of the Erhu Society under the auspices of the Chinese Musicians’ Association. After graduating from the Islamic College of Beijing in 1959, he was selected to receive professional training at the Central Ethnic Song and Dance Troupe, where he was trained in huqin performance, music theory and ethnomusicology under luminaries such as Professor Liu Ming Yuan of the China Conservatory of Music. With his outstanding talents, he was soon promoted to the position of concertmaster of the Troupe’s folk music ensemble. An assiduous learner, Liu has accumulated a wide range of expertise and can play over a dozen different Chinese bowed-string instruments, including the erhu, banhu, jinghu, xiqin, yihu, maguhu, and ghijak. In order to further his studies, he has also travelled extensively around China, seeking tutelage from various folk musicians. With decades of experience under his belt, Liu has not only recorded albums, but engaged in composing, writing of education material, as well as research and compilation of historical archives.
