He plays different versions of the flute, such as the alto dizi, the qudi, and the bangdi. On this CD, he proposes us a series of new compositions by contemporary composers written over the last 20 years, including two of his own compositions, as well as arrangements of a few classics. ZHANG Wei-liang shows his talent and musicianship in playing these fine and exquisite instruments. Highly recommended!
