MUSIC OF KUI DONG
Since When Has the Bright Moon Existed?
Chinese-American composer Kui Dong draws inspiration from old forms, employs unusual instrumental combinations, and even commingles four languages within her compositions on this collection of world premiere recordings. The pairing of the Del Sol String Quartet with the Chinese music ensemble Melody of China bears brilliant results on Dong’s seasons cycle, inspired by both Vivaldi and Cage, titled Spring, Summer, Autumn and Winter.
