I arrived the other day in Wuhan with no particular agenda, but that changed in a New York minute when a concert was planned at Central China Normal University Music School. I was joined by my old colleague Wang Meng 老师, and a wonderful opera student, Tang Jiu Qi, who sang Sonnet 66 from the Sonnet Song Cycle. (listen to this remarkable performance here ) The faculty, including Prof. Tian Xiaobao, Prof. Zang, Prof. Zhang and others, hosted the most gracious dinner afterwards. The concert program included a couple of quickly assembled arrangements of a tango and bossa nova for erhu and piano, Er Quan Ying Yue 二泉映月， and new approaches to music of Liu Tianhua and the inevitable Sai Ma 赛马。
