ArtistsThird Angle New Music Ensemble
Chen Yi (b. 1953) is part of a distinguished cohort of Chinese composers who have immigrated to the United States over the past several decades.
One is struck in Chen Yi's music by the vibrancy and importance of tremolos, pitch inflections and articulations, while concurrently realizing that they are always in the service of the music, not there merely as "effects." Her music stands at the intersection of Eastern and Western musical culture, drawing on the history and music of her native China to create new works that are beautiful, evocative and highly crafted. The theme of cultural integration informs all her work and expands the definition of what we call "American" music.
