“Chinese Baroque” explores the dynamic and complex cultural exchanges between Western Europe and China in the 17th and 18th centuries through the lens of music. Despite mutual fascination, it was often difficult to surmount linguistic and cultural differences to reach a true understanding of each other. Works performed will include a violin sonata written by the missionary Teodorico Pedrini, as well as transcriptions of Chinese tunes through Western ears.
Rita Lilly, soprano; Mindy Ella Chu, mezzo-soprano; Addi Liu, violins; David Wong, guqin and guzheng; Laura Gaynon, cello; Derek Tam, harpsichord
