The Bookworm (书虫) , Gongti Bei Lu Sun 08 May

This event has now passed.

This month, we are proud to welcome Wang Xilin, the best Chinese composer you've never heard of. Known as 'China's Shostakovich', Wang was persecuted under the Cultural Revolution; like his Soviet counterpart, his music is a direct representation of the fury and the agony he endured, as well as his attempts to heal the wounds of his beloved country. The Beijing premier of his piano concerto is slated for June, but we'll give you an exclusive 'sneak listen' of his latest piece, and hear him discuss his powerful, unforgettable work. Join Wang Xilin and the Sunday Salon team including music critic Su Lihua (Sam Su), music promoter Zhang Kexin and Time Out Beijing's Classical and Performance Editor Nancy Pellegrini for this special event.
