LI, Tai-Xiang

LI Tai-Xiang was born in Malan, Taitung in 1941. He was mesmerized by the music played by his elementary school teacher, Lin Fu-Yu. In junior high school, he met a teacher named Chen Gang-Qing, who quickly fostered Li’s violin talents. In 1956, Li began his studies at National Taiwan University of Arts as a fine arts printing major. He eventually transferred to the music department and became a violin major. Hsu Tsang-Houei became his spiritual guru and changed his entire life. He taught in his hometown of Taitung for five years after graduating, and then went back to Taipei to develop his career. He was awarded a Wu San-Lien Award, as well as a Golden Horse Award for Best Original Film Song for “The Sword of Romance.” He died in Xindian on Jan. 2, 2014.
