Chen Gang b. The two composers were still students at the Shanghai Conservatory at the time when they succeeded in creating one of the best known of all contemporary Chinese compositions. The concerto follows an ancient legend that has served as the basis for a number of Chinese operas, offering here a synthesis of East and West. Scored for a solo violin and Western orchestra, the work makes use of themes from traditional Shaoxing opera, popularised in a film of the s, while the solo violin part reflects something of the technique of the er-hu, the two-string Chinese fiddle. The work is in one continuous movement, its three sections corresponding to the demands of the narrative and to the divisions of Western sonata form. The story itself is well known in China, although there are some variants in the tale as it is told. Zhu Yingtai, an intelligent and ambitious girl, disguises herself as a boy and sets out for Hangzhou, to study.
She descends in bitter despair and begs for the grave to open up.
Suddenly, the grave opens with a clap of thunder. Without further hesitation, Zhu throws herself into the grave to join Liang. Their spirits emerge in the form of a pair of butterflies and fly away together, never to be separated again. Historical accounts[ edit ] The earliest record of the legend can be traced back to the late Tang Dynasty. Shanbo's courtesy name was "Churen".
Zhu returned home first. Two years later, Shanbo visited her and only knew that she was a woman then. He was disappointed and felt as though he had made a loss.
He asked her parents for her hand in marriage but her family had already betrothed her to the Ma family. Zhu was on her journey to the Ma residence by boat and passed by Liang's grave.
The strong wind and waves prevent the boat from advancing. After learning that it was Shanbo's grave, she set foot on land and broke down. The ground suddenly cracked open and Zhu was buried within.
The layout of ancient Chinese architectural style in the lower reaches of the Yangtze River such as kiosks, pavilions, platforms and towers was adopted against the mountains and waters, realizing a gorgeous effect of diverse landscapes of mountain beyond mountain and garden beyond garden. The rear hall is their bedroom set with a vermilion wooden bed, behind which is the couple's tomb.
People in Ningbo City tend to worship the temple for bliss of eternal love of couples. The Liang Shanbo Temple built in by the locals in memory of Liang Shanbo, who had contributed greatly during his term in office as a magistrate to resolving the problems caused by the flooding of the river.
The Liang-Zhu Cultural Park in Ningbo was built by the locals, with the love story as its main theme. Sino-Italian love culture festival held in Verona[ edit ] The Sino-Italian love culture festival was held on Wednesday, September 24, in the northern Italian city of Verona, co-sponsored by the municipal governments of Verona and Ningbo city.
Verona is the literary hometown of Romeo and Juliet, the lead characters in Shakespeare's famous play Romeo and Juliet.
Zhu Yingtai, an intelligent and ambitious girl, disguises herself as a boy and sets out for Hangzhou, to study. On her journey she meets Liang Shanbo, a poor scholar, who is also going to Hangzhou for the same purpose. They soon find much in common and swear to become blood brothers. During their three years of study together, they develop a deep friendship, but later Zhu Yingtai is urged by her father to return home.
During her years of study she has fallen in love with Liang Shanbo, but has been too shy to admit it to him. He is reluctant to say good-bye to Zhu Yingtai and walks with her on the first eighteen miles of her journey home, parting at a pavilion, before she continues her journey.
This forms the first section of the concerto. In the central development Zhu Yingtai defies her father, who has arranged a marriage for her with the son of a rich neighbour.
Liang Shanbo decides to visit his friend, and discovers, to his surprise and delight, that Zhu Yingtai is a girl. Liang leaves her, in sorrow, and soon dies of unhappiness. At that moment a thunderstorm breaks. Zhu Yingtai immediately leaps in, before the grave closes again. Be respectful of artists, readers, and your fellow reviewers.
