Beyond the Wall
10th March 2009
On April 21, Tan Dun conducts the London Symphony orchestra in the UK premiere of his Piano Concerto with soloist Lang Lang. They will also perform his Internet Symphony ‘Eroica’.
Tan Dun’s Ghost Opera is inspired by childhood memories of the shamanistic ‘ghost operas’ of Chinese peasant culture. This work for string quartet and pipa (Chinese lute) will be performed by the Grammy winning Kronos Quartet with Wu Man on May 10 in the Barbican Hall.
