This concert revolves around Tan Dun's haunting "Ghost Opera" for pipa and string quartet, based on the composer's childhood memories of the shamanistic "ghost operas" of Chinese peasant culture. In this 4000 year old tradition, humans and spirits of the future, the past, and nature communicate with each other, illustrated in "Ghost Opera" by Tan Dun's incorporation of works by J.S. Bach and Bright Sheng. The "Prelude and Fugue No. 4 in C# minor" from Book 2 of the Well-Tempered Clavier as well as "The Stream Flows" for solo violin by Bright Sheng will open the concert and set the stage for this unique work.
