The Wooden Fish Ensemble
The Wooden Fish Ensemble brings the music of Korean-American composer Hyo-shin Na and the Belgian composer Boudewijn Buckinx to the stage in “The Wooden Fish Ensemble plays Hyo-shin Na Boudewijn Buckinx!” Featuring the premiere of two new works — a violin solo by Buckinx and “Koto, Violin” — audiences can also expect to hear pieces such as “Dreaming of Li-Po” by Buckinx, and three works by Na: “The Sky Was Beyond Description,” “Koto Ninano,” and “Night Procession of the Hundred Demons.” The six pieces will be performed by four members of the ensemble: Terrie Baune (violon), Shoko Hikage (koto/bass koto), Noriko Tsuboi (koto/bass koto), and Yuki Yasuda (koto/bass koto).
This performance by The Wooden Fish Ensemble is hosted by Fort Mason Center for Arts & Culture as part of the San Francisco International Arts Festival, which runs from May 19 – June 5 exclusively at FMCAC.
