Xiaoyong Chen’s compositions are, in a manner of speaking, “west- eastern travelling parties”: to the classical inventory of European instruments, he introduces the sounds of Chinese instruments that have several thousands of years of history to them. As part of this process, Chen asks: “Will the art of the future be based on tradition?”, only to add, matter-of-factly: “If so, why?” Find the album right here.

Alban Berg
