Journey through ‘The Garden’ with rising jazz starsMore info
City Music Foundation Artist Reylon Yount draws on his eighteen years of experience as a trailblazing yangqin (Chinese hammered dulcimer) player to present a cinematic solo programme of traditional and contemporary Chinese music
Embracing the emotive storytelling aspect of his music tradition, Reylon transports us through a range of beautiful scenes: from a celebration of the arrival of rain in Thunder After the Drought, to a moment of solitary freedom along an abandoned railroad in Strange. The adventure culminates in the world premiere of ANTARA, an ethereal experiment by Taiwanese composer Chia-Ying Lin, commissioned by the London-based artist collective Tangram.
