It is a great pleasure to know of Singaporean composer Cheng Jin Koh's recent compositional achievements with the Verona Quartet, commissioned by the Smithsonian Museum! Her work【Mountain of Echoing Halls】《响堂山范特西》will be premiered at the Smithsonian Freer Gallery of Art on 9 Mar 2023.
From the Smithsonian website:
"Two new works by Cheng Jin Koh and Texu Kim take stabs at examining elements of their respective cultures through the lens of a classical string quartet. Cheng’s new work will feature a dancer and the yangqin (Chinese dulcimer) alongside western strings to paint pictures of the Xiangtangshan Caves and their magnificent carvings and detailed decorations."
