Hill Center Concert Series: Feifei Yang and Jiaju Shen
Wednesday, May 10, 2017 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm
Erhu soloist Feifei Yang and Pipa soloist Jiaju Shen are celebrated traditional Chinese instrumentalists who share a keen interest in forging new paths on the world music scene. Between them, they have performed separately or jointly at Carnegie Hall, Lincoln Center, the United Nations, Beijing Olympics, Shanghai World Expo, and have released CD’s that showcase the broad reach of their musical interests.
“With a concert at Carnegie Hall last week timed for the Chinese New Year, the artists delved into quintessentially Chinese subject matter but through a markedly modern lens…testing the possibilities of fusion by bringing jazz and other Western forms to performances on traditional instruments.” Agence France Presse.
