Curator Note
The concept for showcasing the viola sound could be centered around highlighting its rich, warm, and expressive qualities. The concert allows the viola to take center stage, emphasizing its unique tonal characteristics.
Use the viola to express the cultural conversation between Western works and Chinese works.
