Bernstein in Beijing: China's Classical Music Explosion

http://www.time.com/time/arts/article/0,8599,1855684,00.html

By Jeffrey Kluger [Time, 6 November 2008]

Long Yu has come a long way since the day in 1976 when he accidentally killed a duck. The duck was going to die anyway, but not until it had been properly fattened up in the breeding factory where Long, then 12, was required to work in the waning days of China’s Cultural Revolution. The ducks were force-fed through a tube operated by a foot-pedal — a single pump per meal. One day Long got careless and accidentally pumped twice. End of duck.
