December Chrysanthemum: Chamber Music of Xiaogang Ye
Xiaogang Ye has been widely acclaimed in recent decades as one of China’s leading contemporary composers. His music has gained worldwide exposure, having been performed by many of the world’s top orchestras, ensembles and soloists in famous venues. This is the first Delos album devoted exclusively to his works.
“this is clearly inventive, interesting and well-written music… it has a wonderful sweep and forward momentum about it that is enticing, and his uncanny ability to move his musical materials around like so many fast-moving chess pieces on a board is quite dazzling. .… For me, this is truly one of the most interesting and revelatory CDs of the year. I enjoyed every single moment of it!”—Lynn René Bayle, Art Music Lounge
