Insight: From unpublished Chinese folk songs to new Australian compositions by Shan Deng and Maria Grenfell

In 2010, Tasmanian-based musicians Maria Grenfell (composer) and Shan Deng (pianist) embarked upon a unique research project together. The aim was to create a set of pieces for pipa (Chinese lute) and piano, based on traditional Chinese folk tunes that would be ‘re-composed’ as new Australian pieces for this relatively unusual combination. The third and most essential member of the research team was to be Shan’s father Dr Wei Deng, pipa master, who is based in Brisbane. The result of the collaboration, Five Songs from the East, was completed in April and performed and recorded for CD release later in 2012.
