Crossings with the Aurea Ensemble

The Aurea Ensemble is delighted to join forces with Yang Wei, internationally acclaimed pipa virtuoso and member of Yo-Yo Ma’s famed Silk Road Ensemble. This program will celebrate the deep and surprising connections between Eastern and Western cultures, from ancient times through the present. In a rich tapestry of readings in Chinese and English, and music, this cross-cultural, collaboration will include music for pipa and string quartet by Zhu-Jianer and  Lou Harrison, as well as ancient Chinese folk tunes, improvisations and music of Mamiya, Bright Sheng and Maurice Ravel.

Nigel Gore, reader, Chris Turner, reader/harmonica; Lois Shapiro, piano; Katherine Winterstein, Angelia Cho , violins; Consuelo Sherba, viola; Emmanuel Feldman, cello.
