CANCELLED: Classical Guitar Music From Asia

CANCELLED: Classical Guitar Music From Asia

What is it about Asian music that sounds so exotic to our ears? Do the rules of music truly depend on which part of the world you're from, or is there something fundamental running through all music, Eastern and Western? Come and hear ancient melodies written in feudal Japan and sung by samurai. Take delight in a little-known Chinese melody that used to be the nation's most prized anthem, but is now being actively censored and could soon be forgotten forever. Stretch your musical appreciation with the avant-garde searching of a post-war Japanese composer caught between tradition and high modernism. And relish one of the most curious, hauntingly beautiful movie scores ever written by a Japanese composer (and much, much more!)  Perhaps, you'll discover something new. Maybe even be transported across the world by your imagination and this Classical Guitar Music From Asia.
