    Masterworks II

    A Tale of Two Cultures

    Stories and styles converge in Hungarian composer Béla Bartók’s Miraculous Mandarin Suite, opening with wonder and excitement. Continuing along the Silk Road, Orchestra Iowa’s Principal Cellist, Philip Bergman, performs Tan Dun’s evocative Crouching Tiger Concerto. Mussorgsky’s Pictures at an Exhibition wraps up the musical journey with its infamous booming fanfare at the Great Gate of Kiev.

    Hear Chinese and eastern European cultures connect in these dramatic musical pieces.
