Born in Shanghai, Liu Dehai studied various Chinese instruments including pipa at his early age. He graduated from the Central Conservatory of Music in 1961 and since then he had performed to critical acclaim in over thirty countries. Liu had made a major contribution to the development of the pipa by applying western-style fingering techniques which had greatly expanded the instrument’s range of expression. He had made a number of recordings in China. He is best known in the west for his performance of the Little Sisters of the Grassland Pipa Concerto with the Boston Symphony Orchestra under Seiji Ozawa. Liu Dehai divides his time between performance and teaching and is a professor at the China Conservatory.
