Cheng-Ying Chuang Wandering Voices

Cheng-Ying Chuang, the 2008 Young Star of Taiwanese National Concert Hall, presents a soulful journey of wanderers through time/space, with poetic images, ancient Chinese tunes, folksongs and works by Dowland, Purcell, Bach, Handel, Fauré and Britten…etc.

The world’s only Chinese lutenist (liuqin & zhongruan) /counter-tenor is joined by classical musicians in UK for this unique and personal evocation of music from China’s ancient traditions and Western art music. It’s a rare chance to watch a solo recital with two distinguished music cultures fused harmonically through both vocal and instrumental music.

‘With the humble depth of the East and the passion of the West ‘- Neue Westfälische, Bielefeld, Germany.
