Video clips from the Concert for the 100th Anniversary of Tan Xiaolin

Tan Xiaolin's 100th Anniversary Ceremony was held in Shanghai Conservatory of Music last 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.
He was a pioneer of modern Chinese music composition, but he passed away at the age of 37.
The ceremony was co-organized by SCM and National Library of China, and consists of a manuscript exhibition, a concert and a workshop.
As a librarian, music lover and music history translator, I push the cooperation of National Library of China and Shanghai Conservatory of Music. I am glad that the ceremony was a great success.

The video clips for the concert for the 100th Anniversary of Tan Xiaolin can be found at:
which was recorded by me with Flip Video Camera and approved by Shanghai Conservatory of Music.
