The beauty of music knows no borders, and unifies listeners in the tuneful sundry of our harmonious world. Award-winning Canadian composer Vincent Ho writes music for the stringed Chinese instrument the pipa, in an original composition performed by the Grammy-nominated Wu Man. The child prodigy Leonid Nediak takes centre stage with the rhythmically stirring Piano Concerto No. 3 by Sergei Prokofiev. In the midst of the First Great War, Danish composer Carl Nielsen penned his “Inextinguishable” Symphony No.4, a heroic reflection on the nature of humankind.
