BMOP/sound presents a portrait album inspired by landscapes. Chinese-born American composer Lei Liang draws on his culture, family heritage, and personal interests to create music of his identity. In Xiaoxiang, saxophonist Chien-Kwan Lin evokes the mourning of a husband lost in China's Cultural Revolution. Five Seasons coalesces traditional Chinese music, essential elemental characteristics, and western classical allusion, featuring Gao Hong playing pipa (Chinese four-string lute). Inspired by his love and study of the works of painter Huang Binhong (1865-1955), A Thousand Mountains, A Million Streams is a musical look at intricate landscapes, drawn from high-resolution scans of Huang's works.
