XIAOGANG YE (b.1955): The Macau Bride - Ballet Suite, Op. 34, 4 Poems of Lingnan for Tenor and Orchestra, Op. 62.
Catalogue Number: 05P094
Description: The 40-minute suite from a 2001 ballet colors its basically Romantic Western musical language with sparing use of Chinese instruments and musical flavors (the mezzo and chorus each make one vocalise appearance) while the 18 minutes of orchestral songs are impressively clothed in a neo-Mahlerian splendor. English translations. Liu Mingyan (mezzo), Macau Youth Choir, Shi Yijie (tenor), Macau Orchestra; Lü Jia.
