The award-winning composer Julian Yu grew up in China, and has
been resident in Australia since 1985. In traditional Chinese
music a pre-existing piece is ornamented and embellished until it
becomes something quite new. In the same way, Julian Yu takes
famous pieces from the Western musical tradition and ornaments
them in the Chinese manner.
The music, just like the composer himself, are a unique blend of East and West. This CD features the dazzling sticks of the percussionist Robert Clarke, the Academy of Melbourne, the Australia Ensemble and Trio Melbourne.
