Description

After the sensational decision to offer a 24 years old music student the position of first soloist at the renowned Orchestra of the Bavarian Radio, Wen-Sinn Yang became overnight an acclaimed shooting-star. He has been invited to all major concert halls and festivals throughout the world and played under the bâton of the greatest directors of our time.

For the first time, all works for solo-cello by Antonín Dvorák are compiled on one CD.

Wen-Sinn Yang plays with youthful fire, sparkling freshness, brilliant technique and taste for risk.

All interprets on this recording are winners of international competitions and soloists of the world-class orchestras.

The harmony between Wen-Sinn Yang, Maestro Nowak and the orchestra is absolutely outstanding.

 

„A remarkable soloist. Wen-Sinn Yang plays technically at the highest level with a lovely, full sound and impeccable intonation“

Lorin Maazel
