Pianist Jui-Sheng Li takes us in his debut solo album on an intimate journey through some of his very own musical souvenirs. The diverse program combines works from a variety of different cultural backgrounds and seeks to present rarely performed pieces alongside well-known classics. Immerse yourself in the artist's personal story in which he transcends barriers of culture, language and national identity through the transformative power of music.
Recollection opens with Robert Schumann's Allegro in B minor, Op. 8 followed by Alexander Scriabin's 24 Préludes, Op. 11. The second part features Karol Rathaus' transcription of two pieces from his ballet "Der letzte Pierrot". At the very end Jui-Sheng Li presents Two Old Postcards from Formosa by Taiwanese composer Ming-Hsiu Yen.
The New York Concert Review praised Jui-Sheng Li as a “musician of integrity and depth [...] One looks forward to hearing more from this young artist.” Jui-Sheng’s artistic individuality is shaped by his studies in Taiwan, Canada, and the United States as well as his appearances at music festivals across the globe. In recent years, Jui-Sheng has been creatively programming concerts combining traditional repertoire with lesser-performed yet classical compositions. Jui-Sheng has performed at such prestigious venues as Carnegie Hall in New York and Salle des Colonnes–Château de Fontainebleau in France. His research projects, The Masked Music and The Musical Portrayals of Pierrot, have earned him Artist-in-Residence roles at internationally-renowned institutes such as the Banff Centre for Arts and Creativity (Canada) and La Cité internationale des arts (France).
The Album was recorded in 2021 at Konzerthaus Blaibach, Germany.
