Abstract or Description

At 43 last month, Tan Dun has become far and away the best known of the generation of Chinese composers who survived the Cultural Revolution and went on to make reputations in the West. Though there have been times recently when his music has seemed almost ubiquitous, in itself remarkable, Fire Crossing Water - a festival built around Tan's work, which can be seen and heard at London's Barbican Centre the weekend after next - promises to give an especially revealing range of contexts to his output.
