When the refined delicacy of Chinese performance practice joins with the traditions of European art music, the result is an exquisite blend of the familiar and the unexpected. The beautiful harmonies and intricate rhythms of aboriginal Formosan folk tunes inspire a major new work by Shih-Hui Chen, while the multi-layered cultures of China and its peoples are re-imagined in dazzling new music by Chou Wen-Chung, Bright Sheng, and Huang Ruo.
