Nai-Chung Kuan's Memory of Mountain, originally a banhu concerto and here recast for the violin, is inspired by the magnificent scenery and culture of Taiwan's Alishan mountains, and explores three scenic topics employing native instruments to great effect. Joel Hoffman's music draws from such diverse sources as Eastern European folk music and American bebop, remaining full of lyricism and rhythmic vitality. Nautilus Symmetry, his first work for full Chinese orchestra, and Violin Concerto No. 2 'Snow in Spring', display a love of plucked string instruments and traditional Chinese melodies expressed in a style that is recognizably his own. Cho-Liang Lin is an internationally renowned performer, a creator and curator of music festivals and a teacher. Recent concert engagements include numerous solo appearances worldwide with prestigious orchestras. An advocate of contemporary music, Lin has enjoyed collaborations and premieres with composers such as Esa-Pekka Salonen, Joan Tower and John Williams. On this recording Lin plays the 1715 'Titian' Stradivarius and a 2000 Samuel Zygmuntowicz violin.

All New Items on flyvintageandvinyl.com are Priced Below MSRP
and do not reflect our in-store prices and are not necessarily in stock at our physical store.
In fact, most items won’t be because we’re a small, family run business and don’t have space to stock nearly 500,000 new titles.

Separate Shopping Carts for New and Used Items
Because new items available on flyvintageandvinyl.com are fulfilled by our distributor and used items available on used.flyvintageandvinyl.com
(via the “Buy Used” button above) are fulfilled by us at our physical store, they require separate shopping carts and checkout procedures.
It’s a minor inconvenience, but we’ll try to make it worth your while with our selection, ultrasonic-cleaned used records and competitive prices.
Shipping within the U.S. is $5 for the first LP plus 50¢ for each additional LP via USPS Media Mail.
