Using ancient instruments and musical traditions, four living Chinese composers connect the past to the contemporary. Tan Dun's Triple Resurrection features the main theme from his acclaimed score to Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon. Tibetan goddess Tara, able to manifest in a rainbow of colors, comes alive in green, gold, blue, red and white in Emanations of Tara. Zhou Long's The Five Elements represents Chinese philosophies ruled by earth, fire, water, metal and wood, while Huang Ruo's Divergence features a spoken Chinese poem from the Song Dynasty. Stay after the concert to learn more about Chinese history as told through its Bronze Age culture.
