Tan Xiaolin's 100th Anniversary Ceremony is to be held in Shanghai Conservatory of Music next weekend (April 17).
Tan Xiaolin (1911-48) was a Pipa player and studied music composition at Yale with Paul Hindemith. He came back to Shanghai and became the director of the Department of Composition of SCM.
If he lived longer, he would have deeper impacts on modern Chinese music composition.
The ceremony is co-organized by SCM and National Library of China, and consists of a manuscript exhibition, a concert and a workshop.
