New Acquistion - CD Shih-Hui Chen

Goddard Lieberson Fellowship from the American Academy of Arts and Letters states, “Among the composers of Asian descent living in the U.S.A., Shih-Hui Chen (Taiwan, 1962) is most successful in balancing the very refined spectral traditions of the East with the polyphonic practice of Western art-music. In a seamless narrative, her beautiful music, always highly inventive and expressive, is immediately as appealing as it is demanding and memorable.”
Returning Souls - the five compositions by Shih-Hui Chen on this cd can be considered variations of an "ethnic style": they reflect her experiences of being able to return to Taiwan for a year in 2010.
A number of these works will be broadcasted on August 17th on Radio Monalisa.
