Double Happiness

Double Happiness《双喜– Lan Tung (2014) - erhu & violin duo, or 2 erhu, commissioned Russell Wallace

This duet for the erhu and violin is inspired by the erhu solo piece Birds Singing in the Mountains, written in 1928. The erhu and violin echo each other in an intricate dialogue which develops into improvisation. The original erhu solo piece extended the traditional sounds of the erhu with techniques borrowed from the western violin. However, in Double Happiness Lan Tung adapted a number of erhu techniques on the violin, including the trio glissandi and fast rolling of three fingers on the same note.

《雙喜》 (Double Happiness, 2014),二胡、小提琴重奏。.
