An-Lun Huang 黄安伦: Piano Music

An-lun Huang, born in Guang Zhou, Guangdong, in 1949, and a resident of Toronto since 1986, survived the hardships of the Cultural Revolution to make his mark as pianist and composer both in China and in the west. In his piano music he is concerned to find a meeting ground between the piano as a western instrument and his own roots as a Chinese musician. This album shows the cross-fertilisation going in both directions, with a lively dance suite from a ballet inspired by the ancient cave art in Dunhuang, in western China, and the universal figure of Bach stimulating a substantial set of polyphonic compositions where western harmonies are refracted through Chinese colours.

Xing Rong, piano
