Description

for string quartet This intense work is inspired by a photograph of Zhou Long's wife Chen Yi staring face to face with a hawk that had landed near their house. It is filled with eerie slides and gradual dynamic changes with a fierce pizzicato section that leads to the work's climax. Gazers is a fine contemporary piece that explores different sounds of the string quartet instruments and is suitable for the college through professional levels. Duration: 5 min.show more

Deeply grounded in the entire spectrum of his Chinese heritage, including folk, philosophical, and spiritual ideals, he is a pioneer in transferring the idiomatic sounds and techniques of ancient Chinese musical traditions to modern Western instruments and ensembles. Born in Beijing but a United States citizen since 1999, Zhou Long is married to the composer-violinist Chen Yi.show more
