Silkroad Ensemble

Buy Now

The legendary collective founded by cellist Yo-Yo Ma performs for the first time in Perth. Hailed as one of the 21st Century’s great ensembles, the Grammy Award-winning Silkroad Ensemble are renowned for creating music that engages difference, sparking radical cultural collaboration and passion-driven learning to build a more hopeful world. This highlight of the Festival’s classical music program promises to be a transformative experience.

Silkroad musicians and composers hail from more than 20 countries, drawing on a rich tapestry of traditions to create a new musical language — a uniquely engaging and accessible encounter between the foreign and the familiar that reflects the many-layered identities of our contemporary world. Traditional instruments from Armenia, Mongolia or Japan share the stage with those of the Western classical tradition in an outstanding performance of powerful virtuosity, cultural nuance and a unique melding of compositional styles.
