Zhou Tian "Transcend" performed by the Reno Phil
8 Oct 2019
The Reno Phil and Music Director Laura Jackson perform the world premiere of Transcend on April 27, 2019 in Reno, Nevada - written by Grammy-nominated composer Zhou Tian in celebration of the Reno Phil's 50th anniversary season. Zhou recently provided the following program note on the piece: About 18 months ago, I was extremely delighted to have been invited to compose a new work commemorating the 150th anniversary of the First Transcontinental Railroad’s completion in May 2019. When I learned that 13 American orchestras — located along the route of the Railroad — would join forces together to commission and premiere this new work across the country, I was truly honored, as I knew the significant cultural impact this project would entail.
