FirstWorks presents a World Premiere from Rhode Island's own performance ensemble with a superb string quartet at its heart.

Aurea is delighted to join forces for the first time with Yang Wei, internationally acclaimed pipa virtuoso and member of Yo-Yo Ma's famed Silk Road Ensemble. Crossings will celebrate the deep and surprising connections between Eastern and Western cultures, from ancient times through the present. In a rich tapestry of readings and music, this cross-cultural collaboration will include world and New England premieres of music for pipa and string quartet by Zhou Long, Zhu-Jianer and Liu Tianhua, alongside music of Maurice Ravel, John Dowland and Lou Harrison.
