Schnyderfest: Concerto for Pipa and Orchestra

The Swiss-American composer Daniel Schnyder is a master of stylistic fusion; his influences range from Bach and the demonic Schubert to Kurt Weill and Duke Ellington.

He is most recently the composer of Charlie Parker’s Yardbird, premiered by Opera Philadelphia and acclaimed in the New York Times (“a pulsing, jazz-infused score”) and Philadelphia Inquirer (“a great piece”) en route to this summer’s Lincoln Center Festival.
