Then, Mr. LIU Yuxi performed the LIU brothers’ masterpiece, A Beautiful Night, and The Blowing North Wind Capriccio, from violin concerto The White-haired Girl. LIU Yuxi's adaptation of LIU Tianhua's work incorporates techniques for the national stringed instrument, erhu, into violin playing, giving it a warm, gentle Chinese flavour.
