Podcast: Gordon Chin – a graphic account of his Cello Concerto No 1 and Symphony No 3

August 21, 2015

Dramatic tension is never far from the surface in Gordon Chin’s music, exemplified by this new recording of two of his formidable orchestral works. Literary inspiration for the Cello Concerto No. 1 came from the pens of Shakespeare, Pascal and Samuel Johnson, while the disturbed history of Chin’s native Taiwan formed the bedrock of his Third Symphony. Raymond Bisha explores the works’ emotional ride.
