A digital production available online only, presented by Early Music Vancouver

Silk Road Music

All of the works on this programme are taken from traditional Chinese repertoires and feature traditional Chinese instruments with a special focus on music from the Tang Dynasty. This programme is designed as an introduction to Chinese classical music for EMV’s audience. Though the Vancouver-based musicians of Silk Road Music Ensemble are not playing on period instruments, in collaboration with EMV, they have begun to explore the notion of historically informed performance practice for future seasons. They are already in the process of making contact with specialists in China who we plan to co-present in Vancouver in coming seasons.

Access to the concert is free, but donations are greatly appreciated. Concert will remain online one year from premiere date.

This concert is generously supported by Agnes Hohn and Chris Guzy & Mari Csemi 

This concert is part of EMV’s new series, Passports: Early Music from Around the World
