Pianist Joel Fan is one of the most dynamic and accomplished musicians performing before the public today.

He is consistently acclaimed for his recitals, recordings and appearances with orchestras throughout the world. His concerts attract a wide range of audiences, as he has eagerly embraced traditional piano literature as well as an eclectic range of repertoire, including new music commissioned especially for him, world music, and his own transcriptions.

Joel Fan is recognized for his work with cellist Yo-Yo Ma as a member of the Silk Road Ensemble, with performances at Carnegie Hall and the Kennedy Center, and on the television programs Good Morning America and Late Night with David Letterman. Fan has also collaborated with numerous other ensembles, including the Shanghai Quartet, Imani Winds and A Far Cry.

Mr Fan's engaging personality, technical assurance, lyricism and sheer musicality win over audiences wherever he performs. This release follows two outstanding solo albums on Reference Recordings and is Northwest SinfoniettaĀ's first release with Reference Recordings. To quote them: they are Ā"thrilled and honoured with their collaboration with long-time partner and phenomenal pianist Joel Fan".Ā

Northwest Sinfonietta, under the leadership of Founding Music Director Christophe Chagnard, is a vital part of the Pacific Northwest cultural scene and is recognized for its extraordinary performances, innovative programming and collaborations. Since its first performance in December 1991, honouring the bicentennial of Mozart's death, Northwest Sinfonietta has held a unique place as the region's only professional chamber orchestra. In 2012 and 2013, Chagnard led the orchestra on tours to Cuba as only the third professional American orchestra to visit Cuba since the 1959 revolution.
