About

On his debut CD, the Chinese ARD prizewinner Diyang Mei presents truly transcendental works for viola solo: the passacaglias and chaconnes by Bach, Britten, Ligeti, Biber and Hindemith  a programme of great instrinsic luminosity! It is indicative of the mastery and artistic maturity of the multiple competition winner that he has so completely transformed some of the greatest, most profound works of literature. In so doing, he extends far beyond his instrument. A great production!
