A special concert to mark Chinese year of the goat features performances from players of ancient Chinese instruments.
Wu Wei and Wu Man, players extraordinaire respectively of ancient instruments the sheng, a type of mouth organ, and the pipa, a lute like instrument, perform a programme of Chinese compositions with the Orchestre Philharmonique du Luxembourg under the baton of Muhai Tang.
The instruments are apparently older than the Great Wall, with five thousand years of history under their belts. This special concert to mark the Chinese new year--the year of the goat--sees the renowned virtuosos take a new look at an age-old tradition.
The programme features four works by Chinese composers written specifically for the instruments.
Later, in the foyer, Wu Man will give a pipa demonstration.
