Close Encounters with Music is an enriching concert experience that brings together sublime chamber music, distinguished performers and insightful commentary. Putting the composers and their times in perspective, cellist and Artistic Director Yehuda Hanani introduces the program from the stage.
Trade Winds: From China with Love explores the musical dialogue between East and West, with soloist Liu Fang performing traditional selections on the Chinese counterparts to the lute and zither. She is joined by Yehuda Hanani for a premiere by Pulitzer Prize winner Zhou Long. Bulgarian pianist Emma Tahmizian plays Mother Goose and Leo Ornstein’s remarkable A la Chinoise, and Israeli violinist Hagai Shaham offers Debussy’s pentatonic-inflected Sonate.cost
