Paisajes del Himalaya: Guo Gan

Luego de su participación en el Festival Ollin Kan 2014, Guo Gan, uno de los pocos herederos de la tradición erhu (violín chino),  nos dio un viaje por Himalaya, su primera producción como solista. El llamado “Rey de la tradición erhu” no sólo es un violinista, es una montaña de creatividad y un apasionado de los tacos. 


El escenario se convierte. Guo Gan, con una túnica de seda blanca, a la usanza tradicional de  China, se vuelve un haz o un chorro de viento que al tocar los primeros acordes, te envuelve en esa suavidad y te puede llevar a un portal del tiempo o en un remolino de luz en ascenso directo al universo.

"Mr. Guo, a magnificent performer, shaped melodies with the expressive contours of vocal lines in Hua Yanjun’s \Moon Reflected on the Er-Quan Spring\ and provided flourishes that might give a violinist pause during Huang Haihuai’s 'Horse Racing.'" -----STEVE SMITH


Guo Gan started learning erhu in early childhood from his father Guo Jun Ming, also a renowned erhu master .

In 2000, Guo Gan went to France to study and later obtained Master's degree from the National Music School of Fresnes in Paris.

"Guo Gan, a magnificent erhu player from northern China whose father taught the ancient two-string instrument to Lang’s father. Guo was a wonder, his erhu sweetly filling the air with an astonishing sweet and sumptuous sonic perfume, which Lang accompanied with exquisite sensitivity and a sense of fun."  ----Mark Swed
