Program Notes

Good News from Beijing is an orchestral piece composed by Lu Zheng and Hongye Ma in the autumn of year 1976. This piece successfully pictures the happiness and excitement of people at the borderland on hearing the good news. The composers visited southern China several times, and from their experiences of living with the minority nationalities, they had a good grasp of the local music. Folk tunes from the borderland villages were used in composing this piece.
