In this video, violinist Paul Huang plays Bach at the National Palace Museum in Taipei.

Huang says, ‘This video highlights the dialogue between three important subjects: a 1742 Guarneri ’del Gesù’ violin on loan from the Stradivari Society, an extraordinary Vase Within Vase from the Chin Dynasty around 1742 (one of the museum’s most important treasures), and the music of Bach. All of them were created around the same time and yet in very different circumstances and places. This is a unique musical conversation between the East and the West that was conceived and produced by the National Symphony Orchestra of Taiwan where I’m the Artist-in-Residence this season.’
