Description
Opening Night: New Americans

Featuring MMF Composer-in-Residence Bright Sheng, New Americans looks at an array of composers who have become American citizens during their lifetime. Their music is emblematic of America’s marvelous cultural variety and many the contributions which makes this country so rich and diverse. The music of Puerto Rican-born Americans Dan Román and Roberto Sierra reflects their Latin heritage. Martinu came over during World War II, successfully escaping the Nazis and has a continuing influence on American music. Daniel Sabzghabaei draws on his Persian heritage, taking inspiration from Persian melodic and rhythmic systems, folk music, art and poetry. Chinese-Canadian virtuoso Pius Cheung joins the conversation and performs a work by Sheng and one of his own.
