For centuries the trade routes of the Silk Road transmitted goods and culture between Asia, the Middle East, and Europe in one of the earliest examples of globalization. We explore East-West cultural exchange and influence in Nikolai Rimsky-Korsakov’s Scheherazade and Zhao Jiping’s Pipa Concerto No. 2, featuring the extraordinary Wu Man. Missy Mazzoli’s musical love letter to Detroit, River Rouge Transfiguration, brings the theme of this concert home to the U.S. as we grapple with globalization’s cycles of change and rebirth.
