ACM’s last concert of the season pairs Steven Mackey’s piece Indigenous Instruments with three pieces combining western instruments with actual indigenous instruments from around the world.
The concert features Peter Sculthorpe’s String Quartet No. 12 “From Ubirr” for digeridoo and string quartet, Jade for string quartet and pipa by Zhu Jian’er and Paul Moravec’s masterful Shakuhachi Quintet for shakuhachi and string quartet.
The concert features three renowned soloists: Tim Porcelli on digeridoo, Yang Wei, a founding member of Yo-Yo Ma’s Silk Road Ensemble, on pipa, and world-renowned shakuhachi player James Nyoraku Schleffer.
