Tan Dun - Paper Concerto for Paper Percussion and Orchestra (2003)
Nikolai Rimsky-Korsakov - Scheherazade

About the Concert

Though children may dream of Tales of Arabian Nights, Rimsky-Korsakov used these myths and legends to inspire a tone poem of epic proportions. Just as China gave the gift of paper to the world, Tan Dun explores its sonic possibilities in an enthralling new work.
