Hear the Washington premiere of Grammy-nominated composer Zhou Tian’s One Hundred Antiques written for a replica set of ancient bronze bells from China and modern Western and Asian instruments. The Freer performance follows the work’s world premiere the night before at Symphony Space in New York.

Zhou Tian’s music has been described as “absolutely beautiful” and “utterly satisfying” by Fanfare and “a prime example of 21st-century global multiculturalism.” His Concerto for Orchestra was nominated for a 2018 Grammy for best contemporary classical composition.

Hundred Antiquities features ten bronze bells (bianzhong) along with pipa (Chinese lute), erhu (Chinese fiddle), violin, and cello. Also on the program are two works by Pulitzer Prize winner Zhou Long (Three Chinese Folk Songs and Dunhuang Pipa Music), Yang Yong’s River Songs, Wang Amao’s Two Bagatelles, and Wang Guowei’s Drinking Alone with the Moon. The Music from China Ensemble features Wang Guowei, erhu and gaohu (fiddles); Sun Li, pipa; Hong-Da Chin, dizi (flute); Susan Cheng, zhongruan (lute); Michael Katz, cello; and Frank Cassara, percussion. Presented in conjunction with Resound: Ancient Bells of China.

Location: Freer Gallery of Art, Meyer Auditorium
