Inspired by 54ajax's wonderful share of Jenny Lin's Chinoisere, I decided to start a new mini-series featuring Chinese works for piano. There is a considerable body of Chinese music composed for the piano, the majority of which have been either folk song arrangements, inspired by folk music or traditional Chinese melodies or
poetic little lyric pieces with poetic titles. The current program is an outstanding overview of the history of Chinese piano music from the 1930s to the early 1980s.

Jia Daqun was born in Chongqing in August 1955. He is widely recognized as"one of the most gifted younger composers among those who immersed themselves in structuralism."(Frank Kouwenhoven: 'The Age of Pluralism, Mainland China's New Music (3).' Since 2000, Jia has been a member of Yoyo Ma's Silkroad Ensemble as one of their Composers in Residence. Jia's Fusion II, descibed by the composer as a 'concerto for Chinese Percussion and orchestra" is written in a broadly contemporary idiom - reminiscent of both Varese and Messiaen. While not self-consciously "Chinese," the ethnic instrumentation injects an unexpected jolt of color into this modernist score.

Do not let the prosaic album title fool you; contained within is 50 minutes of truly lovely Chinese orchestral music, designed to harmonize the body, emotions and mind. For millennia the Chinese have been aware of the healing properties of music but in recent years research has thrown new light on the relationship between music and the medical and philosophical model of the Five Element system. Regimen is the outcome of this study, a collaboration between medical researchers and leading Chinese composers. Two long tracks offer sweeping melodies performed by The Shanghai Racial Music Troupe, featuring shimmering strings, soaring flute, piping reeds, massed lutes, tuned bells and assorted percussion. Designed to balance all five of the elements within the listener, Regimen is an uplifting album that does indeed have a calming and inspiring effect. Besides Regimen, there are additionally five other titles in the series, each addressing one of the five elements. The entire series may also be purchased in a box set. ~ Backroads Music/Heartbeats, All Music Guide

This recording showcases both the rich variety and the sonic surprises to be heard in contemporary Chinese piano music. Myth and landscape loom large. Pulitzer Prize-winner Zhou Long’s Pianobells takes legend as its inspiration in an evocation of sonorous bells borne on the wind. For Doming Lam the goal is reinterpreting Chinese ancient melodies and imitating gongs and drums to evoke the atmosphere of Chinese opera. For Grammy Award winner Tan Dun, his Eight Memories are a ‘diary of longing’ – musical watercolours inspired by folk music.
