Winner of 2016 Euro-Sino
Cultural Exchange Contribution Award:
Professor Liu Yuening from Central Conservatory of Music, China
December 21, 2016
After cautious discussion, we decide to give 2016 Euro-Sino Cultural Exchange Contribution Award to famous Chinese dulcimer artist Dr. Liu Yuening from China’s Central Conservatory of Music for her great effort and distinguished contribution to the cultural and artistic exchange between Europe and China.
As one of the leaders of Chinese dulcimer circle, Professor Liu attaches great importance to the exchange, mutual learning and intercommunication between Chinese folk music (including dulcimer) and foreign music, especially European music. Her effort not only enhances the mutual understanding and integration between Europe and China in the field of musical culture, but deepens the friendship between the two sides. Led by Professor Liu, European Tour Troupe of Prizewinners of National Yangqin (Chinese dulcimer) Competitions of China paid a visit to Austria, Hungary and Romania in 2016. It is considered as an icebreaking trip for the exchange of musical culture between Chinese dulcimer and European dulcimer, to which field Music Confucius Institute and Center for Exchange & Experience of Chinese and Foreign Music Culture, hosted by Professor Liu, make significant contributions.
