Featuring two U.S. premieres, East meets West in this program which explores the gestural qualities of French and Chinese music through the movement art of eurythmy. With the concept of polarities of touch as meeting ground, Franck’s Violin Sonata speaks to the romanticism of the Butterfly Lovers Violin Concerto, while Ravel’s Tzigane encounters its counterpart in the U.S. premiere of Singaporean composer Kam Kee Yong’s Kuang Xiang Qu, nicknamed the ‘Chinese Tzigane’.
