The Chinese violinist, Sheng zhong guo 盛中国 , passed away last week. He has been the iconic people in Chinese violin education and performance in the last 40 years. His version of 牧歌 （the pastoral song）is my favorite. The tenderness of emotion intertwined with the openness of violin sound created a sorrow but gentle atmosphere in the endless grassland. Rather than expressing more of my admiration, I think practicing the violin is the best way to show my respect to him!
Sheng zhong guo played the violin too well, so the E.T. took him away.
