Erhu virtuoso: George Gao

Few people that have visited parks in China have failed to see someone playing an erhu - the Chinese two-stringed instrument that many call a Chinese violin. If you want to hear someone who can really play the erhu please listen to George Gao ( 高韶青 Gāo Sháoqīng) (see performance here and here). Remember the erhu has only two strings! Absolutely amazing!
