"cross//roads" 2003

cross//roads 2003. Current Music between Asia and Europe

Our successful concert series cross//roads continues in 2003 with the confrontation of culturally differing musical concepts, but draws its attention further to the fields in-between composition and improvisation or composition and traditional Asian music. The concerts focus on distinguished soloists and ensembles from the EastAsian cultures: China Found Music Workshop Taipei, the Chinese soloists Wu Wei (Sheng) and Xu Fengxia (Zheng) as well as Huang Lung-Yi (Sheng) from Taiwan.

They meet with Western musicians and composers, explore the borders between traditional music practices, improvisational concepts and composition and thus also establish connections between local and global aspects of intercultural encounter.
