Poetry of the Pipa with Wen X. Zhao
琵琶行

"The bold strings-they patterned like the dashing rain,
The life strings-they sounded like the lovers' whispers.
Chattering and pattering, pattering and chattering
As pearls, large and small, on a jade patter fall.’
- Song of Pipa by BaiJuyi (816 A.D.)

The pipa is one of the most expressive and representative of Chinese traditional instruments; it interweaves ancient Chinese airs with contemporary compositions.

This special performance will bring you along a musical journey from the calm flowing waters of the Yellow River to the lively folk festivals of the Southern villages. Experience the Pipa‘s artistic dynamics from lyrical to martial in this solo performance by Pipa virtuoso Wen X. Zhao.

Performance will begin promptly at 7:30 p.m.
