    • Qigang Chen New Commission
    • Brahms Symphony No. 4
    • Lou Harrison Pipa Concerto

    The Pipa can trace its popularity in China to the second century BC.  A four-stringed, lute-like instrument, it is said that its musical name derives from the two basic strumming techniques used to play the instrument: “pi” is the outward stroke, “pa” the inward.  Enormously versatile, in the hands of a master such as Wu Man, this ancient instrument makes remarkable music that honours its history while embracing new challenges, such as lending its distinct tones to the soundtrack for Kung Fu Panda 3!
