About this performance

MSO Artistic Ambassador Tan Dun presents a unique performance of three concertos exploring his early memories.

“Growing up in rural China, I received my early musical training in such an organic way, mounting paper for instruments, singing a song in the village to the accompaniment of water, using ceramics to bang out the beat. I was surrounded by ritual music and ghost opera, not Bach, not Beethoven, not Brahms. These early memories have become so important as inspirations.”

— Tan Dun


MSO 艺术大使谭盾呈献三首有机音乐协奏曲,探索他早年的记忆。

“有机音乐,是人跟大自然的一种吟诵,一种灵魂的沟通,一种对大自然人性的理解。在中国农村长大的我,早期音乐训练就这样有机地进行,裱纸乐器,在村里随着水的伴奏唱一首歌,用陶瓷敲出打击乐的声音。 我被礼乐和鬼歌包围着,不是巴赫,不是贝多芬,不是勃拉姆斯。 这些早期的记忆已经变得像灵感一样重要。”— 谭盾
