Catalogue Number: 10W057
Label: Grand Piano
Description: Composed in 1979, Twelve Preludes shadows similar works by Bach and Chopin, conceived according to the concept of the circle of fifths, even though there are more frequent modulations within each piece. Ancient Music employs the prepared piano to evoke the intimate sounds of Chinese instruments, as well as Wrong, Wrong, Wrong! while the world premiere recording of Hard, Hard, Hard! was written for toy piano. Yiming Zhang (piano).
