Chen Yi: Concertos for String Instruments

Chen Yi made history as the first woman to graduate with an M.A. in composition from Beijing’s Central Conservatory, but that was only the start of a fruitful career that has brought her recognition across the globe. Having made her home in the U.S. since 1986, she is one of the most brilliant examples of the kind of multicultural artistic identity that enriches our modern world.
