For more information, visit "Night Thoughts" was inspired by a ninth-century Buddhist pipa tune and represents for pipa virtuoso and composer Wu Man a chance to rediscover the pipa's native, regional language. She was particularly drawn to its ancient tune scale, which is very different from today's mostly pentatonic pipa music, and to the peaceful, meditative sound of the pipa in the low register. This performance took place at Harvard University's Sanders Theatre in March 2011, as part of a concert by the Silk Road Ensemble with Yo-Yo Ma. Silkroad is affiliated with Harvard University.
