 Joyce Yang piano
   


 Pianist Joyce Yang follows her critically acclaimed AVIE debut, Collage (AV 2229), with the equally imaginative Wild Dreams, inspired by a musical dream sequence. Joyce explains, “In our dreams, remote parts of our psyches come forth to create their own worlds and realities. Improbable scenarios intertwine. Characters normally divided by time and space mingle in our imaginations. In this subconscious world there are no boundaries or rules, and spontaneity trumps logic. Each piece on Wild Dreams defies gravity, and the sense of time and space is redefined in the spontaneity of performance. Part of my thinking may be stimulated by my synesthesia – the way I “see” music – but I am also imagining the swirling subconscious at work in the minds of these composers, prodding wild new realities and vocabularies as they created these particular pieces in their waking dreams.” Joyce interweaves dream-inspired and nocturnal works such as Earl Wild’s transcription of Rachmaninov’s Dreams, Hindemith’s In Einer Nacht, Schumann’s Fantasiestücke and Bartók’s Out of Doors. The climax of the programme is Rachmaninov’s passionate Second Piano Sonata, performed with bravado. 

"... This recording certainly offers value for money at 78’ 46" and I found the selection to be carefully thought through and really well balanced to accommodate well-known and less-familiar repertoire. There is plenty of bloom to the sound, which is exactly what is needed for this multi-layered repertoire."

Mark Tanner - International Record Review - May 2014


"Joyce Yang’s second album for Avie presents her notion of dreams: wild, passionate, ardent, and sincere, at once."   ****
