About this Recording

WANG, Lisan: Piano Works (Complete) (Yiming Zhang)

Wang Lisan, a leading Chinese composer, suffered under a repressive political system but continued to compose pieces deeply rooted in the various folk traditions of his country. He was the first Chinese composer to publish a twelve-tone piano piece—Two Fantasies after Le He’s Poems—whilst also writing piano studies, adaptations from well-known songs, pieces with typical instrumental ensemble sonority, free arrangements of Yangko drama, and suites of impressions. This recording, comprising several world premières, is the first time his complete piano works have appeared together.
