In their home region of Jiangnan in China, located to the South of the lower Yangtze River, Qian Zhan and Xianya Zhang are renowned teachers and performers on the guzheng zither and erhu fiddle. They are well-recognised for their virtuosity and their deep roots in the old tradition but, at the same time, are right at the forefront of developing fresh new repertoire for their instruments. Visiting the UK specially to perform for you, tonight they perform classics from the Jiangnan area as well as some of their most recent creations.
