Avie welcomes back an artist with a truly exciting project. In her debut solo recital, pianist Evelyn Chang draws attention to her musical and cultural roots: to eastern musical poetry.

With a mixture of contemporary composers and the selections of Scriabin’s 24 preludes Op.11, Evelyn Chang embarks upon an emotional and personal journey, showing her skills not only as a virtuoso but also as a true artist, fully understanding the vocabulary of each of these works and also exploring her experience in the Western Cultural spectrum.

Evelyn Chang: "I deeply enjoy the enormous freedom one can experience in the expression of music. Regardless of genres, types, forms or traditions, I find no boundaries when searching for the desired sound. Instinct has always been the driving force in my musical journey. This curiosity leads me to playing solo, chamber music, electronic-acoustic music and improvised music, collaborating with international artists, and also making recordings.

The idea of this album came from my love for miniatures and sounds with Eastern flavours. Altogether they form a collection of beautiful tone poems. I wish to share these eastern colours with listeners from all backgrounds because, to put it simply, they are beautiful."
