Notes and Editorial Reviews

The cellist Wen-Sinn Yang and the conductor Shao-Chia Lü both live and work and have found great success in Germany. Both were trained at important music academies in Berlin and Vienna. During the 2016/17 season, Wen-Sinn Yang was invited to perform several concerts as artist in residence with the Taipei Philharmonic. The performances of three concertos in June 2017 were so enthusiastically received that it was decided to release them as live recordings. The wonderful acoustics of the National Concert Hall in Taipei and the amicable dialogue between soloist and conductor have thus been preserved on this release.
