Description

Italian Jesuit priest Matteo Ricci, author of An Essay on Friendship, died in China in 1610 after spending the past 20 years there. In this season-opening concert, the Folger Consort and guests artists join in a speculative reconstruction of a musical evening Ricci and his Chinese friends may have enjoyed in Beijing.
