Poets From The East Evelyn Chang Avie

POETS FROM THE EAST

Evelyn Chang - piano

Avie welcomes back an artist with a truly exciting project. At her debut solo recital, pianist Evelyn Chang draws attention to her musical and cultural roots: to eastern musical poetry.

With a mixture for contemporary composers and the selections of Scriabin’s 24 preludes Op. 11 , Evelyn Chang embarkes a emotional and personal journey showing her skills not only as a virtuoso but also as a true artist, fully understanding the vocabulary of each of these works and also exploring her experience in the Western Cultural spectrum some of the pieces also have.

Evelyn Chang about her trajectory and the choice of repertoire:

Born in Taipei, my musical interests started the moment I was able to repeat the tunes I heard on television, with my tiny voice and two fingers on the piano. At thirteen, encouraged by my teacher Mary Kuok Chiu Tse, I moved to London to study at the Purcell School of Music under Andrej Esterházy. It was then that the exploration of western music and many other cultures began. I embarked on a personal journey with a lot of traveling, concerts, practicing and making music with friends from all over the world.

After studying at the Royal College of Music with professors Irina Zaritskaya and Andrew Ball, I made my London debut in 2004 at the South Bank Centre. Some exciting reviews lead to a string of interesting projects, working with various composers. I particularly enjoy being able to interact with composers, discovering different ways to portray their ideas together as a team.

I deeply enjoy the enormous freedom one can experience in the expression of music. Regardless of genres, types, forms or traditions, I find no boundaries when searching for the desired sound. Instinct has always been the driving force in my musical journey. This curiosity leads me to playing solo, chamber music, electronic-acoustic music and improvised music, collaborating with international artists, and also making recordings.

The idea of this album came from my love for miniatures and sounds with Eastern flavours. Altogether they form a collection of beautiful tone poems. I wish to share these eastern colours with listeners from all backgrounds because, to put it simply, they are beautiful.

‘Evelyn Chang is an impressive supportive pianist, her interaction with Rysanov being most impressive.’ BBC Music Magazine

‘I would remiss if I didn’t mention the thundering contribution of pianist Evelyn Chang (..) getting a sound worthy of Lizst’ Fanfare Magazine
