Abstract: The purpose of this project was twofold because it filled a need in two areas. First, the Chinese Rhapsody No. 3 is a work studied by all Chinese saxophonists, yet to date, no professional-level recording of the work is available. My recording fills this void. Second, both the Chinese Rhapsody No. 3 and its composer are unknown to Western saxophonists. The document will introduce Huang Anlun and his Chinese Rhapsody No. 3 through a brief biography and an interpretive analysis of the Rhapsody through various aspects, such as Chinese traditional music style and the imitation of Chinese traditional instrument timbres. This will enable more people to know about one of China’s excellent composers and an aspect of China’s unique traditional culture.
