" Xiren's writing is piano composition at its finest. I closed my eyes and it took me places, this is almost magical, a real artist at work. The piano is played with real conviction, passion and emotion. The soul shines through in every note. Each track is like a movie for me, I can see it as well as hear it - that's power.”
"Alluring, elegant, mysterious."
"Haunting, Gothic, Evocative."
Haunting original score.
Heather Anne Chamberlain
A rousing soundtrack, emotive and airy during the monologues, and warlike and drum-heavy during the mythologizing. It’s no wonder that the music regulates the pulse of the play; composer Xiren Wang is an “aural magician.”
Composer Xiren Wang, whose evocative original score immerses and guides the audience through the play’s shifting settings and tones, describes this play within a play: “There is melodrama that evokes epic brushes of fantasy, there is realism that is steeped in a cold melancholy, there is comedy, in between layers of madness, and then there is all that space in between.”
Xiren Wang's fingers dance across the keyboard of the grand piano at the Fogolar Furlan Club with the power and grace of ballet.
But there’s more than passion and virtuosity in her interpretation of Beethoven. The aching beauty of her music also hints at Wang’s own story, one that is a testament to the unbreakable thread of human empathy.
Don Lajoie, The WINDSOR STAR
“Extremely alluring, thought provoking piano album. The piano music creates a sense of purity and innocence. The melody captivates, and the music promotes a deep sense of peace.
There is a feeling of time moving forward. The music is so beautiful that it is breathtaking. The listener stops and feels each mote. Well done!”
