“The Kennedy Center in Washington has heard many classics: but this summer pianist Joel Fan brought here something new. His performance in June, entitled “From China with Love: Connecting Cultures through Music“, included both Chinese favorites like Liuyang River and Castle in the Sky and complex Western classics, all intended to give audiences from different cultures something unexpected. … Fan said he was inspired to create the program while he was touring extensively in China over the past three years. On his last tour over the winter he covered 20 Chinese cities in two months. That’s when he decided to design a program that would “stretch the ears” of the audience. “I hope to have stimulated them both emotionally, and intellectually,” he explained. He believes his program gives the audience an experience to remember, while trying to bridge cultures.” —Liu Jingyang, China Daily
