"The Return is the Movement of Tao" pays tribute to one of the most renowned interpreters of J.S. Bach's music: the outstanding Chinese pianist Zhu Xiao-Mei. Shot in places that are dear to her, such as Paris, Buenos Aires and the winter beauty of the Alps, Michel Mollard's documentary centers on music and its mystery, on the links between Bach and Lao-Tze and on the dialogue between the cultures, especially between the West and China. It offers profound insight into the mind of a fascinating artist, her vision of the Goldberg Variations and on what makes this great masterpiece so powerful

Von Mao zu Bach : wie ich die Kulturrevolution überlebte by Xiao-Mei Zhu( Book )

4 editions published between 2009 and 2013 in German and held by 30 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Peking 1966: Dem musikalischen Wunderkind Zhu Xiao-Mei wird eine grosse Karriere als Konzertpianistin vorausgesagt. Doch noch während Xiao-Mei am Konservatorium studiert, bricht die Kulturrevolution aus. Die kulturbeflissene Familie Zhu gilt plÖtzlich als 'bourgeois', was in Maos China dekadent, gefährlich, konterrevolutionär bedeutet. Das junge Mädchen erlebt, wie Noten verbrannt und ihre Lehrer Öffentlich hingerichtet werden. Xiao-Mei wird in ein Arbeitslager verschickt und verbringt dort fünf Jahre unvorstellbarer Entbehrungen. Nach Jahren ohne Musik entdeckt sie ein altes Akkordeon, und mit der Musik steigt die Hoffnung auf ein neues Leben in ihr auf. Sie beschafft sich ein Klavier, übt wie eine Besessene, flieht aus dem Lager nach Peking, gelangt nach Isaac Sterns Chinatournee schliesslich ins Ausland. Zehn Jahre wird ihre abenteuerliche Odyssee über Hongkong, Los Angeles und Boston dauern, bis sie in Paris endlich zur international gefeierten Pianistin und Bach-Interpretin wird. Zhu Xiao-Mei, geb. in Shanghai, entstammt einer Künstlerfamilie und trat schon mit sechs Jahren in Rundfunk und Fernsehen auf. In ihrer Autobiografie, die in Frankreich zum Bestseller wurde, erzählt sie ihren abenteuerlichen Lebensweg. Seit 1985 lebt Zhu Xiao-Mei in Paris, wo - spät, aber umso erfolgreicher - ihre internationale Pianistenkarriere begann. Sie lehrt am Konservatorium in Paris, gibt zahlreiche Konzerte und begeistert insbesondere mit ihren Bach-Interpretationen
Zhu Xiao-mei : how Bach defeated Mao( Visual )

1 edition published in 2016 in English and held by 15 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Music, and in particular Bach's music, enabled Zhu Xiao-Mei to face the greatest challenge of her life. This film follows her return to China after 35 years of exile, now as a recognized Bach specialist. Under Mao's regime and as part of the Cultural Revolution, she suffered years of indoctrination and so-called "re-education"--including five years in a labor camp--and was left with a broken family and broken spirits. In 1980 she emigrated and made Paris her new home. 50 years after the Cultural Revolution, the celebrated pianist returns to a transformed China. Music schools are no longer considered a safe haven for counterrevolutionaries; playing an instrument is no longer a mark of Western bourgeoisie. Au contraire. To own a piano has become a desirable status symbol. Nonetheless, the last page of the Cultural Revolution has yet to be turned. Zhu Xiao-Mei fights constantly against forgetfulness, always reminding those around her that Chinese society remains profoundly marked by this dark period in its history
