War and Peace in the Forbidden City and Versailles

The Four Nations Ensemble & Music from China

Music from China joins forces with Four Nations to present a panorama of War and Peace from history’s two great court societies.

From the gentle rocking of lullabies to the clangor of arms and armor, see how these musics contradict and complement each other in one of Four Nations’ most fascinating programs, which has been presented by The Smithsonian Institution at the Sackler Gallery, The Boston Early Music Festival, and on UK tour by the BBC.

The elegant mirrored hall of the Abigail Adams Smith Auditorium sets the stage for repertoire from the courts of Versailles and Beijing, where delicacy rather than turbulence constituted the height of expression.
