Chinese Art Music: Yang Wei and Ensemble
Friday, December 9, 2011, 7:30 p.m.
This specially commissioned program of Chinese art music features an ensemble of Chinese virtuoso instrumentalists—led by pipa master Yang Wei—and cellist Mike Block. Yang Wei has been playing the pipa since he was 13 and his artistry has been celebrated worldwide, inspiring audiences throughout Asia, Europe, and the United States. On December 9, Yang Wei and ensemble will perform Chinese music at its height of beauty and sophistication. This program complements the museum’s exhibition Chinese Art in an Age of Revolution: Fu Baoshi (1904–1965), on view now through January 8, 2012.
