The Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center’s Drumming

Don’t let the title full you. Drumming features lots of drums, but the players coax a great deal of musical diversity from their instruments. A monsoon of cymbal crashes drives the opening piece, Živkovic’s Meccanico from Trio per uno, before John Cage’s In a Landscape dials back the audience’s heart-rates with the pitter-patter of marimbas. The show concludes with Bartók’s more diverse Sonata for Two Pianos and Percussion, which opens with an upwardly creeping piano scale, then ends in a jovial march of tympani.

Peking Acrobats

During a thrilling spectacle for all ages, audiences direct their oohs and aahs toward the stage as The Peking Acrobats perform a captivating variety of Chinese folk art that has survived for more than 2,000 years and includes modern, high-tech special effects. The nimble cast of performers, assembled from China’s top acrobat schools, dazzles the crowd with daring physical endeavors that demand balance and precision. Live musicians playing traditional Chinese instruments provide the soundtrack to each stunt as acrobats effortlessly tumble, somersault, walk on wires, and pile onto a single moving bicycle.
