Composer An-lun Huang; beautiful music


Dear Flutelovers,
 In my hunt for new repertoire that is absolutely beautiful,  a piece of music has surfaced this week that I had never heard before, even though it was written in 1981 by composer An-lun Huang, who now resides in Toronto. Here it is in all its glory. Wow, how beautiful is THIS?

An-lun Huang/黄安伦 
Dance-Poem No.1 for Flute and Piano -  Op.31 No.1 (video)
The composer is only a little more than a decade older than I am!

Huang Anlun was born in 1949 and showed an early interest in music and in particular in composition. He studied at the Central Conservatory in Beijing between 1961 and 1968 and in 1976 was appointed resident composer with the Central Opera in Beijing. In 1980 Huang undertook further study at the University of Toronto, moving later to Yale. His compositions include the operas Flower Guardian and Yue Fei, the ballets The Little Match Girl and Dream of Dun Huang, and a number of orchestral works. prize in 1986.
Enjoy this work! Hope it's new to you as well! :>)
