Shanghai Violin – Chinese Film


In the Mood For Love

While my erhu was being touched up in the shop, I practiced on the Shanghai violins hanging on the wall. Most are copies of Stradivari or other famous violins and have extremely unique tones that cannot be described with words. They’re a delight to play. Above, I attempt a piece from a Chinese movie, “In the Mood For Love,” that I saw at the Jacob Burns Film Center in Pleasantville, NY last summer. I apologize for the playing, but I don’t practice as much as I used to.
