August 29, 2014


The Irving S. Gilmore Music Library and the Yale School of Music are honored to welcome Professor Lin Zai Hong, Head of the Shanghai Conservatory of Music, and Professor Qian Ren Ping, Professor of Music Theory, along with their colleagues, to the Yale campus September 10–12, 2014.

The highlight of the visit will be a lecture presented by Professor Qian on “The Art Song Compositions of Huang Tzu” and will include performances of some of his art songs. A reception in the SML Memorabilia Room will follow. The lecture takes place Thursday, September 11 at 10 am in the Sterling Memorial Library’s lecture hall.

There will also be an exhibition of his rare manuscripts and related materials that will honor his musical contributions as well as his time as a student of composition of western music here at Yale in 1928.

Huang Tzu is attributed with being the first Chinese composer to write a large-scale orchestral work, his overture In Memoriam. The exhibit will be on view in the Gilmore Music Library.



Dear Yale Library and/or School of Music,

My name is Mindy Chu and I am currently a voice graduate student at the YSM and ISM. I am trying to locate the musical scores for Huang Tzu’s music art songs. Can you possibly provide more information on how to locate this?

Thank you,
Mindy Chu
