The International Contemporary Ensemble explores the expressive potential of traditional Persian, Hungarian, American, and Japanese instruments in a program of works influenced by ancient ritual, oceanic wonderment, Irish Bardic poetry, and beyond. This inventive evening culminates in the world premiere of Dai Fujikura's Shamisen Concerto.
