Water Concerto #1 (for Tan Dun)
T. Renner, "Water Concerto #1 (for Tan Dun)," 2009, acrylic on paper, 7" x 5".
The third in a series of works inspired by the "Powerful Percussion" program performed by the Saint Louis Symphony Orchestra on Friday, October 30.
The same program will be performed at Carnegie Hall on Wednesday, November 4.
[Note: Tan Dun was apparently bumped for a tribute to Claude Levi-Strauss, who died on October 30 at age 100.] The composer of "Water Concerto", Tan Dun, will be a guest on National Public Radio's "On Point," Wednesday, November 4. In St. Louis, the program airs from 8:00 to 10:00 p.m. on St. Louis Public Radio (90.7 FM), and Tan Dun will appear during the second segment of the last hour. You may also listen a podcast from the "On Point" website.
