Recorded at Studio E, Linde Center for Music and Learning at Tanglewood
Hosted by Karen Allen
Founded in 2000 by Yo-Yo Ma, Silkroad Ensemble celebrates its 20th anniversary this year as the performing dimension of Silkroad, an initiative advocating and developing global cultural communication through music, art, and education.
The flexible and continually changing musicians of the ensemble embrace and share music from around the world. Seven—two pairs and one trio—of Silkroad’s multitalented artists—working with instruments as diverse as Celtic harp, Indian tabla and Japanese shakuhach, from several different countries and musical backgrounds have teamed up to create new works blending and highlighting both their individual artistry and the spontaneity that results from collaboration.
