The multifaceted and multi-award winner Tan Dun
has made an indelible mark on the world music scene with a creative repertoire that spans the boundaries of classical music. The Symphonic Poem on Three Notes
describes an evolutionary arc from nature through industry and back to nature, the traditional orchestra augmented with a range of unorthodox sound sources such as wind, stones and car brake drums. The drama of Orchestral Theatre
centres on memories of ritual from the composer's childhood, linking folk music styles to Western atonality, while the Concerto for Orchestra
describes the exoticism of Marco Polo's geographical, musical and spiritual journeys.
