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。
