Description: The NYU Symphony Orchestra will perform Tan Dun's masterpiece, The Map in a one-night only concert performance. The renowned Chinese composer created the work as a response to his 1999 tour of the eastern part of Hunan Province. The field video recordings used in The Map capture passionate antiphonal singing, intriguing tongue singing, emphatic percussive dance and other images of ethnic musical life. The interaction of audio-video and live music connected generations and cultures across years and over continents.
