The concert also shines a spotlight on Wu Man, the world’s reigning pipa virtuoso and Silk Road Ensemble member. She performs Lou Harrison’s concerto for the pipa, a traditional Chinese lute that dates back 2,000 years. Wu Man has devoted her career to creating awareness of China’s ancient musical traditions and was named Musical America’s Instrumentalist of the Year in 2013, the first time the award was given to a player of a non-Western instrument.
