Parade by Guo Wenjing (1956)

Guo Wenjing belongs to the first generation of Chinese composers who could train at the Central Conservatory in Beijing after its reopening in 1978. With a catalogue combining pieces for Western and Chinese instruments, Wenjing conceived Parade (2004) for six traditional gongs, from which he is able to extract a wide timbral palette.
