Why See Los Angeles Philharmonic - Buddha Passion?
The US Premiere of Tan Dun's 'Buddha Passion'
Chinese modern-classical composer and conductor Tan Dun's far reaching influence encompasses the realms of radical experimentation, proudly populist works, film scores, orchestral theatre, technologically forward multimedia experiences and traditional opera, threading them together with a bold and innovative creative vision. Amongst his many accolades, the contemporary music genius has won an Academy, a Grammy and a Bafta Award for works including the score for motion picture 'Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon' and the 2008 Beijing Olympics medal ceremony music.
Gustavo Dudamel and the LA Philharmonic celebrate the icon's lasting legacy with US premiere of their commission of Dun's latest work 'Buddha Passion', following the LA Master Chorale's critically acclaimed performance of his 'Water Passion after St. Matthew' in 2015. Inspired by the ancient Mogao Cave paintings of Dunhuang, the sweeping new oratorio is sung in Chinese and Sanskrit, and scored for a full choir, seven soloists and orchestra. There'll also be a bold video installation in accompaniment.
Performance date: 8 February 2019
