Chinese pairs are in the work with Lori for the new season programs. The preparation is not only for this season but also next season. the team has spent quite an effort on the music selection, "how to better tell chinese story" is a key........
My two cents on telling good Chinese stories. So far there are only a couple of warhorses that the CFSA leadership would consider for use in international competitions. CTHD with some other Tan Dun compositions sprinkled in, Butterfly violin concerto, The Yellow River piano concerto, Turandot, and maybe The Last Emperor soundtrack and some other Zhang Yimou film soundtracks (The Road Home, Red Sorghum, etc). Make no mistakes, these are great pieces but there are so many other diverse and interesting music pieces that tell good Chinese stories. They are just not famous enough for the leadership to see them as "safe" choices.
Well, I didn't understand if yqs100 meant only the Pairs were going for that or every Chinese team member - but in the second case we might see a variety of stories, especially from the singles field :agree2:
Wang Xuehan is apparently filing for retirement.Wait, it's confirmed? Yu split with Zhang and Lei Wang split with Xuehan? I'm sad for Xuehan if so, but happy that Shiaoyu can continue.
