Recitals from the World Stage: Silkroad Ensemble with Special Guest Rhiannon Giddens
July 29, 2020 @ 8:00 PM - 10:00 PM$8
This is an online event.
Founded by Yo-Yo Ma, Silkroad Ensemble is the performing dimension of Silkroad, an initiative advocating and developing global cultural communication through music, art, and education.
Tanglewood is a spiritual home for the ensemble, which first convened here two decades ago. In these performances newly recorded from Tanglewood’s Linde Center and elsewhere, Silkroad’s multitalented artists from several different countries and musical backgrounds team up to create works blending and highlighting both their individual artistry and collaborative spontaneity, performing on instruments as diverse as Celtic harp and Japanese shakuhachi. The concert features two world premieres jointly conceived by Maeve Gilchrist/Kevork Mourad and by Edward Perez/Kaoru Watanabe, and the presentation also includes archival footage from a 2012 Silkroad Ensemble performance at Tanglewood.
