Su Lian Tan's assured approach to chamber music is marked in this recording, nimbly performed by the Jupiter String Quartet and pianist Bruce Brubaker. Life in Wayang transports the listener to the traditional puppet theater found most notably in Indonesia and Malaysia, echoing of gamelan and rich with musical commentary. Orfeo in Asia follows the ancient Greek legend to Southeast Asia as he encounters new modalities of harmony and rhythm. Finally, Revelations utilizes the quartet and piano together, reflecting on contemporary scholarly life and its intricacies.
