Tan Dun's Water Concerto

On Friday, Aug. 5 the OSM under Kent Nagano is performing Tan Dun's Water Concerto in Sherbrooke. Here is a close-up look at the water percussion instruments used in the piece, during a rehearsal for a performance by the St. Louis Symphony. The percussionist is Colin Currie. Tan Dun wrote the score for the film Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon and has composed numerous imaginative pieces for the concert hall.
