WU MAN, pipa
ZHAO JIPING: Pipa Concerto No.2
IGOR STRAVINSKY: Suite No.2 for Small Orchestra
FRANCIS POULENC: Sinfonietta
Wu Man, recognized as the world's premier pipa virtuoso and leading ambassador of Chinese music, comes to Taipei to join the NSO in a full-length concerto by Zhao Jiping, known to millions through his film scores for Raise the Red Lantern, Farewell My Concubine, and many others. Stravinsky's satirical and playful Suite No. 2 for Small Orchestra is followed by Poulenc's Sinfonietta, a half-hour of music infused with a carnival atmosphere; Poulenc himself regarded this work as more entertaining than serious.
