Tan Dun’s Water Passion - La Jolla Music Society’s SummerFest 2012

10/5/2012; 84 minutes

"Water Passion" is a multicultural/multimedia oratorio, written by acclaimed Chinese composer Tan Dun to commemorate the 250th anniversary of the birth of J.S. Bach, whose "St. Matthew Passion" provided the initial inspiration for this work. The music is a theatrical mix of water bowls, drums, strings, Tibetan bells, chants, digital sounds, Chinese opera and Tuvan throat singing, with a dash of jazz and postmodernism, all filtered through Tan Dun's adventurous sensibility.
