Bringing together the music of East and West, pianist Yiyun Gu fuses six thematic groups in a program featuring bells and moonlight, the water spring and fish to fiery tango and the sombre tones of a funeral.
Explore music of the Romantic and Impressionist eras right through to contemporary Latin and Chinese music as Chinese-born Australian pianist Yiyun Gu performs Tan Dun, Gao Ping, Mo Fan, Debussy, Liszt and Piazzolla.
