Min Xiao-Fen received a commission from the Smithsonian Institution to compose new original soundtracks for “Romance of the Fruit Peddler” and “Romance of the Western Chamber,” two historical Chinese silent films from the 1920s. Ms. Min, known for her innovative approach to traditional music and her ability to seamlessly integrate diverse musical styles, will perform with master percussionist River Guerguerian, a renowned multi-percussionist and composer and a leading figure in classical, jazz and world music. Together, they bring a unique cross-cultural expression and artistic vision to the stage. Both films will be shown during the performance.
