The Sound Of Ku­lang­su (鼓浪屿再发声)

One of the four most pop­u­lar or­gans in North Amer­i­ca, Casa­vant, was cre­at­ed in Boston, USA, 100 years ago. Be­cause of the move­ments in the his­to­ry, the or­gan was dam­aged and could not be played. Ten years ago, un­der the arrange­ment of Hu You Yi, this or­gan was shipped from USA to Xi­a­men, Chi­na. Now, Casa­vant has been re­paired and is able to spread the sound of melody.

10年前,它在爱国华侨胡友义的安排下,从美国辗转来到中国厦门,在“音乐之岛”鼓浪屿上开始了重生之路。今天,卡萨翁——这台目前中国大陆最大的管风琴在它百岁之时,终在东西方能工巧匠的手中焕发了青春,再次奏出了天籁之音。
