Aurea is delighted to join forces with Yang Wei, internationally acclaimed pipa virtuoso and formerly of Yo-Yo Ma’s famed Silk Road Ensemble; and Lois Shapiro, renowned pianist and chamber music collaborator, of the Triple Helix Piano Trio. Crossings celebrates the deep and surprising connections between Eastern and Western cultures, from ancient times through the present. In a rich tapestry of readings and music, this cross-cultural collaboration will include world and New England premieres of music for pipa and string quartet by Zhou Long, Zhu-Jianer and Liu Tianhua, alongside music of Maurice Ravel, John Dowland and Lou Harrison.
