The multifaceted and multi-award winner Tan Dun has made an indelible mark on the world music scene with a creative repertoire that spans the boundaries of classical music. The Symphonic Poem on Three Notes describes an evolutionary arc from nature through industry and back to nature, the traditional orchestra augmented with a range of unorthodox sound sources such as wind, stones and car brake drums. The drama of Orchestral Theatre centres on memories of ritual from the composer’s childhood, linking folk music styles to Western atonality, while the Concerto for Orchestra describes the exoticism of Marco Polo’s geographical, musical and spiritual journeys.


   




Review By Oliver Chou,Sunday Morning Post,November 2012

In Symphonic Poem on Three Notes, Tan shows off his mastery in developing from la-ti-do into a series of ingenious variations for full orchestra…the 2012 version fuses more exotic effects into the music, such as bells, chants and even stamping on the floor, all adding up to a great exciting soundscape…

Concerto for Orchestra in Four Movements…will please many hi-fi fans.

Orchestral Theatre (dated 1990) documents Tan at his folkish best…

All in all, a 2012 Grammy hopeful. © 2012 Sunday Morning Post
