It's practically impossible to overstate the impact that Asian culture and art have had on classical music in the 20th and 21st centuries; here, the New York Phil offers an agreeable crash-course, featuring traditional Chinese music played by Music from China; Eastern-inspired works by Tchaikovsky, Debussy and Ravel; and more recent compositions by Takemitsu, Tan Dun and Li Huanzhi.
