Mel Martin
Audiophile Audition, November 2016

This is an interesting idea for a program, and we get a two disc set offering quite a bit of music. The performances are excellent, and the music selection is engaging. Naxos has given us a fine recording, with a nice, stable stereo image between my two speakers. Strings are well-rendered, and there is a tight low end when the music calls for it. Percussion instruments have sharp attack in this close-in recording.

As a program it flows quite well, and other than the Schoenberg and the Pärt, the music was new to me, but quite enjoyable. © 2016 Audiophile Audition Read complete review

James Manheim, September 2016

The Intimacy of Creativity is a program that brings composers to Hong Kong and the Hong Kong Philharmonic Orchestra to present and revise new works. …the performance of the Cantus led here by conductor and American-based Chinese composer Bright Sheng is extraordinary: luminous, mystical, broad, and deep. …All are attractive pieces, …A recommended collection from an ensemble that will be immensely important in concert music going forward. © 2016 Read complete review
