Product details

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.
