Hi, I'm a new member here, and first off, I can't read Chinese.

I have a piece of music in this book I copied from my Chinese music teacher, Prof. Vicente Ongsiaco at the University of the Philippines College of Music.

He said that the translation of the title was "Cloud Mountain Song"

When I used this Chinese character tool (http://www.chinese-tools.com/tools/mouse.html) to identify the characters of the title, it came up with "yun ling shan ge"

Once I scan the first page, I will post it here right away as an update.

I don't know who the composer is, nor can I find ANY video or hits on Google about the piece.

It's my piece for finals, and I still know nothing about it.

HELP.

1. I know it says Yun Ling Shan Ge, but I can't find it on Youtube or wherever on the net.

2. It's blurry, but it says Xu Xiao Lin Qu, and I think Xiaolin Xu is the composer, also, he/she is a teacher at the China Conservatory I think.

Does anyone know anything about this? If you can help me out, it would be awesome. :D

Thank you!

It is Yun Ling Shan Ge as you said. The composer is Xu Xiaolin.
Seriously, I have never heard of this piece. I did listen to a lot of Xu Xiaolin's piece, but never heard this one. I checked the Xu Xiaolin DVD and CD I have, but didn't see this song listed.
Sorry, can't really help.

A lot of her music have similar ingredients. Maybe you can check out her other songs to get an idea of the piece you are studying.

Thank you very much!

Well, in fact, there aren't much resources here in the Philippines, since most of them are in Chinese, and I really can't read Chinese.

But thanks for the tip!

Looks like I have to learn this on my own. :)

Maybe I can upload a copy of the piece and a video of me playing (when I finally get to play the piece, haha!)
