WHAT’S INTERESTING ABOUT THIS CONCERT?

  • If you’re not familiar with the erhu, it’s a two-stringed, bowed instrument that’s often referred to as the Chinese Violin. The bow of the instrument is never separated from the strings, and it passes between them instead of over them.

  • Tan Dun’s Crouching Tiger Concerto a concert work based on Tan’s Oscar-winning score for Ang Lee’s Oscar-winning film, Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon — a film which joins the quintessential Asian genre of martial arts cinema with the drama of a western romance with a deep metaphorical message.
  • Taiko are a broad range of Japanese percussion instruments. In Japanese, the term refers to any kind of drum, but outside Japan, it is used to refer to any of the various Japanese drums called wadaiko and to the form of ensemble taiko drumming more specifically called kumi-daiko (meaning “set of drums”).
