- After two “hysterical weeks” in Havana, Gershwin wrote his Cuban Overture to share the musical colors of Cuba he loved with American audiences.
- Michael Daugherty’s Grammy award-winning piece, Tales of Hemingway, based on the writings of Ernest Hemingway, features cellist Zuill Bailey, who won a Grammy for his recording of the piece.
- Tan Dun’s, Secret of Wind and Birds, was inspired by new and old, natural and man-made, ancient and modern. Bird songs depicted by traditional Chinese instruments are played on smartphones of musicians and audience members.
