Go East, Young Men 

At tonight’s Silk Road Ensemble performance at Severance Hall, the esteemed group eschews the usual classics in favor of some relatively obscure tunes written by Eastern composers. The troupe -- founded by hotshot cellist Yo-Yo Ma -- features members who are in their early and mid-twenties. “The way they portray classical music is very free and young,” says Massoud Saidpour of the Cleveland Museum of Art, which presents the concert. Tonight’s show features works by Hungarian composer Béla Bartók, Iranian instrumentalist Hossein Alizadeh, and Armenian musicologist Komitas. “These artists show the value of the music by introducing what is inherent in the culture,” says Saidpour.
Wed., Jan. 17, 7:30 p.m.
