|Duet for Guqin and Zhong Ruan, c.8'35
Cloud hands, or yun shou, is a form of movement in taiji quan (t’ai ch’i chuan) and some other Chinese martial arts, which is used in combat to deflect an opponent’s attacking punch or strike. Its main characteristic is that although appearing to be a very soft and fluid movement, in essence it possesses a high degree of internal strength which is transmitted to the opponent. Various aspects of yun shou are expressed in this piece.
Includes CD for practice purposes. Composed 2014
