Close Encounters with Music is an enriching concert experience that brings together sublime chamber music, distinguished performers and insightful commentary. Putting the composers and their times in perspective, cellist and Artistic Director Yehuda Hanani introduces the program from the stage.
Trade Winds: From China with Love explores the musical dialogue between East and West, with soloist "Queen of Pipa" Liu Fang performing traditional selections on the Chinese counterpart to the lute. She is joined by Yehuda Hanani for a premiere by Pulitzer Prize winner Zhou Long. Bulgarian pianist Emma Tahmizian plays Mother Goose and Leo Ornsteinís remarkable A la Chinoise, and Israeli violinist Hagai Shaham offers Kreislerís Tambourin Chinois and Joseph Achronís haunting Hebrew Melody. The program concludes with Ravelís groundbreaking pentatonic-inflected Piano Trio. Brimming with ardor and ecstacy, itís like a Picasso painting in music ó the modern that returns to primitive.
