A recording of diverse compositions from distinguished composer Man-Ching Yu.

Dr. Man-Ching Donald Yu is a Hong Kong born Chinese composer, pianist and conductor. As a prolific and versatile com¬poser, he has composed more than 150 original works that have been frequently performed internationally. The stylistic traits of his recent works are character¬ized by the intermingling of the expressive and lyrical language of atonality, stylistic diatonicism with new tonality, and Chinese color while sometimes blending with micro-polyphonic musical materials. Born in 1980, Yu received his formal training at the Royal School of Music and Baylor University, subsequently studying at the Internationale Sommerakademie Universitat Mozarteum Salzburg and at Hong Kong Baptist University, where he received his Ph.D. in composition and music theory. His music has been performed throughout North and South America, Europe and Asia. Yu’s awards include the Sir Edward Youde Memorial Fellowship and awards from ASCAP. He is the founder and conductor of the Hong Kong Amadeus Chamber Orchestra and a faculty member of the Department of Cultural and Creative Arts of the Hong Kong Institute of Education. The works on this premiere recording dedicated to his compositions are diverse and range from large-scale orchestral works to chamber music, to electronic music and works for solo instruments.
