Two venerable contemporary music ensembles, Music from Copland House and Music from China, offer world premieres by celebrated young composers Du Yun, Samson Young, Derek Bermel and Gaybird Leung (pictured) . These four idiosyncratic composers — originally from Shanghai, Hong Kong and New York — will take radically different approaches to the challenge of composing for a blend of Chinese and Western instruments, along with electronics or their own voices, in some cases. Placed together collectively, along with other works that explore this mixed space, the concert will be a fascinating examination of the music that lives at multiple intersections, between China and the United States, and between classical and vernacular traditions.
