Additional Information

The Silk Road, the ancient network of trade routes stretching from China to the Mediterranean, generated some of the most important artistic, cultural, and religious developments in world history.

In this program, the musician and professor Chuen-Fung Wong brings the Silk Road to life via a performance of traditional Chinese chamber music and poetry, emphasizing the trade route and its representations as major inspirations for musical creativity and sonic possibility.

In conjunction with the Getty Center exhibition Cave Temples of Dunhuang: Buddhist Art on China’s Silk Road.

Copresented with the UCLA Confucius Institute.
