For this concert Elizabeth Reian will play premieres by Martin Shcreiner of Harvard; Tufts’ grad composers Wei Yang and Cagdas Donmezer; as well as a duet for two shakuhachis by John McDonald; and a traditional piece. Composer and shakuhachi player Chris Molina also will appear with New York shakuhachi artist Marco Lienhard in pieces he has created.
The pieces we’ll be playing span traditional, to modern and contemporary. So expect to hear cranes, see birds of paradise, and hear new ideas and imagination at work. You’ll also hear three shakuhachi players from different genealogies, with different playing styles, a unique experience at Tufts.
