Horse Racing on the Two Strings of Erhu

A “HAPPY” Erhu masterpiece
For the people who don’t like Erhu, their major complain is about its sorrowful tune.

Honestly, I don’t know why. Maybe it’s about Chinese culture; maybe it’s inherited in the characteristics of erhu tunes.
However, there IS one famous “HAPPY” erhu masterpiece  “Horse Racing”.
