CEWM - Trade Winds-From China with Love http://cewm.org/greatbarrington.html#4

POSTER-cewmLiuFang
CEWM - Trade Winds-From China with Love
Close Encounters With Music
Saturday, April 21 at 6PM

Before today's multiculturalism and penchant for fusion, the musical dialogue between East and West began with Debussy, Ravel, and the American avant-garde. China's "Empress of Pipa," soloist Liu Fang, performs traditional selections on the Chinese counterparts to the lute and zither, and 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 Sonata and Fritz Kreisler's Tambourin Chinois.

Liu Fang, pipa and guzheng
Emma Tahmizian, piano
Hagai Shaham, violin
Yehuda Hanani, cello
