Award-winning musician and native of China Maiko Sasaki has performed with arts organizations all over town, but for this intimate chamber performance the ROCO clarinetist is bringing it home in "Roots, Reeds and Rhapsody," presented by ROCO and performed at Asia Society Texas Center under its Performing Asia umbrella. The eclectic program includes Bright Sheng’s Concertino for Clarinet and String Quartet; the contemporary composer drew from fragments of folk tunes he heard decades ago while living in northwest China. Joining Sasaki are violinists Amy Thiaville and Kana Kimura, cellist Courtenay Vandiver-Pereira, pianist Makiko Hirata with Suzanne LeFevre on viola. They also will perform works by Sergei Prokofiev, Franz Liszt, Béla Bartók, Claude Debussy and Zhou Long.
