At the scene, the prelude “Shangshan Ruoshui” opened the curtain of this concert. In the ancient mysterious and romantic artistic conception, music comes. First of all, the sound of flowing water and birds rang from far to near, and gradually appeared in the sound of bamboo festivals, pottery tanks, sounds without words, and bean bumps.

The Suona concerto “Shen Ze” depicts the scene of the ancestors during the Liangzhu period with music, and chose to penetrate the very strong Suona as the main musical instrument. However, in terms of performance, Song Guangshun, a young Suona performer, broke the more bold way of suona in the past and conveyed the empty mood.

In the “Rune” chapter in cooperation between bamboo flutes, percussion and strings, in order to show the state of engraving on the stone wall, the composer uses stone discs and slate. In the “Ding Ding Dang Dang” knocking sound and the long melody of bamboo flutes, the audience led the audience to trace the origin of the original text.

In the view of composer Wang Yunfei, although “Impression Liangzhu” is a group song, it also includes the principle of symphony koji in it, with a sense of overall design. For example, the four most representative national instruments of Suona, Erhu, Bamboo Flute, and Pipa are selected as the main instrument of the concerto work, showing the expressiveness of solo instruments and the overall tension of national bands.

It is reported that the work is a funding project of Zhejiang Culture and Art Development Fund in 2019, and it is also selected for the national ethnic instrumental exhibition hosted by the Ministry of Culture and Tourism.
