ArcoStrum’s 70-minute Musical World Tour chamber music program combines mixed-genre, multi-culture, and cross-era selections of self-arranged music from all corners of the world—including works by Vivaldi, Scarlatti, Fernandez, Bach, Barrios, Dyens, de Falla, Piazolla, Zhihui, and Hai-huai.
“While the traditional Chinese instruments allow us to imitate the sounds of nature, such as horse and bird
