Event Description:
This series puts the spotlight on music in two renowned film epics: Akira Kurosawa's "Ran," with a film score by Toru Takemitsu, and Ang Lee's "Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon," with a score by Tan Dun.

For the second night of the series, Ang Lee's "Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon" (2000), the tale of a stolen sword, redefined the wuxia or historical martial arts film with its epic scale, star performances, bold cinematography and martial arts choreography, and soaring score written by Chinese composer Tan Dun and performed by cellist Yo-Yo Ma. It won Academy Awards for Best Cinematography, Original Score, Art Direction, and Foreign Language Film. 

The screenings are part of a celebration of contemporary Asian music which will culminate with the Cooper Series event "New Music From Asia" on Sunday, February 8th.
