Video: New Gorka Hermosa Composition 'Zheng Zai' World Premiere by Xu Xiaonan - China

Xu XiaonanVideo of the World Premiere of 'Zheng Zai" in Beijing. This work was also part of the program Xu Xiaonan (picture left) performed at Arrasate (see above article) International Competitions with great success, where he was a mere 7/100ths of a point from 1st place.

Composer, performer, teacher and historian Gorka Hermosa (picture below) writes about his new work “Zheng Zai” (2013) available online at: ghermosa03

“Zheng Zai” (2013) for accordion solo was comissioned by the Chinese player Xu Xiaonan. He proposed that I compose a work based upon a Tibetan melody, full of energy and I accepted this idea.

This piece is a bridge between different cultures: the oriental and the occidental.

The oriental, because of the Tibetan airs and the occidental because of the funky rhythms and minimalist textures.

This work was composed in August 2013 and premiered on on the 1st December 2012 by Xu Xiaonan at the Recital Hall of the Central Conservatory of Music of Beijing. This concert was a significant element of the project "BOB" (Best Of Best), which is a Chinese national project for cultivating talents.
