The Phoenix, co-commissioned by the Seattle Symphony and Danish National Symphony Orchestra, was inspired by a Hans Christian Andersen tale, the mythical bird symbolizing for Chinese-American composer Bright Sheng “the muse of all peoples.”

Aggressive fervor seeks meditative peace in H’un: In memoriam 1966-1976, hailed by The New York Times as “a searing portrait of the Cultural Revolution in China … deeply affecting.”Red Silk Dance, Tibetan Swing and The Phoenix are WORLD PREMIÈRE RECORDINGS

Sheng’s exquisite Spring Dreams, Three Fantasias and Tibetan Dance are available on Naxos 8570601. China Dreams and Nanking Nanking can be heard on Naxos 8555866.
