Contemporary Chinese composer Tan Dun’s, Crouching Tiger Concerto for cello and orchestra and Tchaikovsky’s Symphony No. 2 cross paths in the surprising Tchaikovsky and Crouching Tiger. Tan Dun’s Crouching Tiger Concerto weaves together melodies from the Silk Road as inspired by his Oscar-winning film score from Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon. Dun’s piece is presented alongside Debussy’s Prelude to the Afternoon of a Faun and Tchaikovsky’s joyous Symphony No. 2, inspired by Russian folk songs."
