Description

This 2014 Albion recording from Potton Hall features the outstanding pianist and violinist Jane Chee in première recordings of piano arrangements of film music. Her 'Braveheart' arrangement has been particularly successful.

Through composers such as John Williams, Hans Zimmer, Ennio Morricone and James Horner, the classical symphonic style remains vitally important in firm music into the 21st century, albeit complemented with electronic, ethnic and popular elements to create a more varied and complex musical synthesis. As many of the film scores on this CD demonstrate, variety and complexity have been achieved without sacrificing emotional impact and the film composer continues to add enormous value to the greatness and memorability of a film overall.

Jane Chee Yean Ng is unusual in being a highly accomplished soloist in both the piano and violin. The performing career of this Malaysian-born artist began at the age of seven when she gave concerts for both instruments. As a violinist, pianist, and composer, she has performed extensively at international festivals in Singapore, Japan, Hong Kong, Spain, Hungary, and the Czech Republic. She furthered her studies with Yossi Zivoni in London on full international scholarships from both the Associated Board of the Royal Schools of Music (ABRSM) and the Royal College of Music, supported by the Richard Carne Trust, Irene Hanson and Gandar Dower Awards, the Clemence Charitable Trust, the Musicians Benevolent Fund, Tinggi Foundation, and the Malaysian Youth Orchestra Foundation. Jane currently performs on a 1750 Testore violin, kindly on loan from the Rin Collection. Recitals in 2014 include the Woburn Festival, The Caledonian Club, Blackheath Halls and St George's Bristol.
