Listen: Mongolian fiddles and youthful elan

The Chinese-Mongolian composer and musician Zulan was commissioned by DW to write a new work for the Beethovenfest. Hear the result in a colorful concert spanning Orient and Occident.

"Amila" was frenetically cheered at the world premiere in Bonn's Beethoven Hall on September 25. The piece combines instruments and vocals from Mongolia with the sound of a Western symphony orchestra. Then, following a section played by the six-piece band "Mongolism," the young musicians of the German National Youth Orchestra show what they're capable of.
