PERF2605: Chinese Music Ensemble 2

In this unit students continue their previous study of one Chinese instrument in both small group and ensemble settings. They are encouraged to build on technical capacity developed in their first semester's study, and to perform a wider range of pieces. They will also engage with a range of recordings and live performances of Chinese music to further develop their understandings of traditional and contemporary Chinese music, and of how Chinese musical instruments have featured in a variety of musical contexts.
