Tianwa Yang Wins Best Chamber Music Award

February 6, 2009

Naxos’s recording of Sarasate's Concert Fantasies (8.570192), with Tianwa Yang (violin) and Markus Hadulla (piano), has received the Best Chamber Music Award at the 2008 Top 10 Hi-Fi Album Award Ceremony presented by Radio Guangdong. Further information is available in Chinese on http://fjthk.now.cn:7751/21hifi.com/award/2008/best1/b5.htm. This is Tianwa Yang’s second recording with Naxos of the complete works of Sarasate (to be released on a total of seven CDs).


Sarasate: Music for Violin and Piano, Vol. 2
8.570192

This album has been acclaimed: “There is a kind of natural order to her playing as well as a natural intelligence. Listening to her play has a kind of cleansing effect on my mind; it makes the world seem dazzlingly beautiful, yet, at the same time at peace and in balance. I suppose Yang's playing can only be described as perfect, and ‘perfect’ is a word I normally hate to use, because I normally think of perfection to be a myth.” (American Record Guide)

Volume 1 is available on Naxos 8.557767 and has also been very highly praised: “The highest recommendation, as a recording of special merit, to anyone even remotely connected with the violin and to everyone who isn’t—yet. It’s like first love.” (Fanfare)
