A lecture-performance with two pianos - Ming Wong

At a time of growing tensions between the U.S. and China, the piece tells of what is known as Chinese-American ping-pong diplomacy. Based on a piano competition and a table tennis match, pianists Ben Kim and Mark Taratushkin explore the role of European classical music, modernism and myth-making in the rise of both nations in the 20th century in this ping-pong double concert.
