Description

Fantasia on Kang Ding Love Song was composed in the summer of 2008 for the Shanghai Conservatory of Music Jazz Ensemble directed by Professor Zhang, Xiaolu. The piece was premiered at a special concert in October 2008 conducted by Dr. Gene Aitken. The intent was to use a well known Chinese folk song as a point of departure for a piece that combines the Chinese folk tradition with the language of contemporary Western jazz and art music in a new and exciting way. This piece can be played with traditional big band instrumentation, but also includes optional Xun (Chinese flute) and Solo Alto Flute parts.

Instrumentation

Standard Big Band (5/4/4/4)
