“A joyous revelation…an emblem of what people can do in these fractious times when they live in concert with one another.” Wall Street Journal
In the nearly 20 years since its founding by cellist Yo-Yo Ma, the Silk Road Ensemble’s sublimely virtuosic members have created an extraordinary flow of gorgeous, impassioned music seamlessly joining disparate traditions, new and ancient. The ensemble returns to the Hop to premiere a work by Jia Daqun, one of China’s leading classical composers, inspired by Chinese calligraphy and featuring 16-time Grammy winner Ma.
