From Stravinsky to Tan Dun, an Everlasting Musical Dialogue Between East and West
Music has always been an effective channel for cross-cultural dialogue. A recent concert in Beijing staged a unique communication between the works of Stravinsky and one of China’s most famous composers, Tan Dun.
On the evening of October 24 at the Poly Theatre in the capital, a special concert entitled “Tan Dun Conducts the China Philharmonic Orchestra in Conversation with Stravinsky” was held as the closing event of the 24th Beijing Music Festival. This was indeed a very unique form of reciprocal reflection on music by Igor Stravinsky (1882-1971) and Tan Dun, a world-renowned contemporary composer who produced the score for the movie “Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon.”
