2000 Today: A World Symphony for the Millennium

Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - Andrew Farach-Colton
Music has always been an essential part of celebration. Chinese-born composer Tan Dun has already proved himself a eloquent master of ceremonies with his SYMPHONY 1997, musically memorializing the return of Hong Kong to China. With 2000 TODAY, Tan has constructed another vast symphonic soundscape to commemorate another great event of our time: the birth of a new millennium. Commissioned by an international consortium of television broadcasters, this work was transmitted over 55 networks at the stroke of midnight on January 1, 2000, starting first on the Pacific island of Tonga then continuing through all 24 of the earth's time zones. Subtitled "A World Symphony ...

Barnes & Noble - Andrew Farach-Colton
Music has always been an essential part of celebration. Chinese-born composer Tan Dun has already proved himself a eloquent master of ceremonies with his SYMPHONY 1997, musically memorializing the return of Hong Kong to China. With 2000 TODAY, Tan has constructed another vast symphonic soundscape to commemorate another great event of our time: the birth of a new millennium. Commissioned by an international consortium of television broadcasters, this work was transmitted over 55 networks at the stroke of midnight on January 1, 2000, starting first on the Pacific island of Tonga then continuing through all 24 of the earth's time zones. Subtitled "A World Symphony for the Millennium," 2000 TODAY is scored for full orchestra and chorus, plus an diverse ensemble of folk instruments from around the globe, including a huge battery of percussion, the Australian didgeridoo, Japanese shakuhachi, Chinese pipa, and Jewish klezmer clarinet. Propelled by the steady rhythmic tread of drums -- like the relentless march of time -- Tan Dun's music is tuneful and spirited. Drawing upon a panoply of sounds and styles, it's a tribute to the composer's craft how well this 11-movement, 47-minute symphony hangs together. From the uplifting opening chorus, "Beyond Light," to the ecstatic supplication of the closing "2000 Passions," Tan's music is lucid, dramatic, and stirring. A dynamic cover of Bob Marley's "One Love" by Ziggy Marley, Tsidii Le Loka, the Boys Choir of Harlem, and the Gypsy Kings makes a spicy appetizer for this international feast for the ears.
All Music Guide - Steve Huey
Composed and conducted by Tan Dun, 2000 Today: A World Symphony for the Millennium is a sweeping work blending the performing talents of the BBC Concert Orchestra, the London Voices, and the Harlem Boys Choir. In keeping with the global nature of the accompanying television special, a number of world music artists are featured as well, and acts like the Gipsy Kings and Ziggy Marley & the Melody Makers join in on a closing performance of Bob Marley's "One Love."
