About

Inspired by the image of a violin melody ‘flying off’, Chinese-American composer Bright Sheng’s virtuosic three-movement concerto Let Fly interweaves Chinese and Western classical elements. Vivid legends of astrological animals inform Zodiac Tales, a tour de force concerto for orchestra. Reflecting the city of Suzhou’s ancient, continuous cultural heritage, traditional nostalgia fuses with contemporary rhythms in the exciting Suzhou Overture.

Bright Sheng has a strong presence in the Naxos Chinese Classics series. His piece for cello and string orchestra The Blazing Mirage on 8570610 received the Supersonic rating from Pizzicato, and was also praised by AllMusic.com: ‘a strong outing for a composer who deserves to be known better.’ Spring Dreams, written for violin and Chinese orchestra, is available on 8570601.
