Silk Road

Our groundbreaking partnership with the Silk Road Project, Inc. has enabled G. Schirmer to make available the catalogue of Silk Road Project commissions to musicians and audiences worldwide. These commissions combine Western classical and Eastern traditional instruments.

Founded in 1998 by world-renowned cellist Yo-Yo Ma, the Silk Road Project is a multi-disciplinary initiative which examines the cross- cultural influences among and between the lands comprising the legendary Silk Road and the West.
