Composer Portraits: Wang Lu

February 21, 2019
8:00 PM
Miller Theatre, 2960 Broadway, New York, NY 10027
Born in Xi’an, one of the oldest cities in China, composer and pianist Wang Lu writes music that is dramatic, lyrical, and powerful. Brought up in a musical family with strong Chinese opera and folk music traditions, her works reflect a very natural identification with those influences, through the prism of contemporary instrumental techniques and new sonic possibilities. The musicians of ICE and Yarn/Wire are longstanding champions of Wang Lu, and their enthusiastic devotion will be on full display in this important showcase that will include a world premiere of a new work for Yarn/Wire co-commissioned by Miller Theatre. Miller's flagship series Composer Portraits exposes audiences to the boundary-breaking music of today, with evening-length immersions that explore the work of a single composer in depth and include onstage discussions with the composers.
