Description

Malaysian pianist Mei Yi Foo - winner of the Newcomer of the Year at the 2013 BBC Music Magazine awards - gives the world premiere recording of Unsuk Chin's extremely virtuosic Piano Études, which take up and develop on the legacy of Ligeti's. Following the artist's recommendation, the listener is invited to create their own playlist, and playfully intersperse these among the other "musical toys" on the album, including Ligeti's Musica Ricercata and Gubaidulina's Musical Toys.

"Mei Yi Foo is a unique musician, who has played my Piano Etudes with astounding perfection and creativity." - Unsuk Chin

Personnel: Mei Yi Foo (piano)
