Escapades & Excursions

A musical travelogue from East to West. A tale told by a Chinese instrument, the pipa, and a cello. The seminal work of the Spanish Golden Age, Don Quixote. What these pieces have in common may surprise you. Music does join disparate peoples in more ways than one.

In place of the concert "Cello Escapades" that was to have taken place in April (featuring Qin Li-Wei on cello, Wu Man on pipa, Zhang Manchin on viola, and conducted by Yu Long), we present our next Spotify playlist, inspired by the evening's programme and exploring the wonderful inter-cultural connections made by music.
