 Paul Chihara Conductor

Yulan, an acrobatic, dance and visual extravaganza featuring the Dalian Acrobatic Troupe of China came about as a collaboration between dancer/choreographer Dennis Nahat, his Chinese colleagues, and composer Paul Chihara. Nahat, who was artistic director of the Ballet San Jose and founder of Theatre Ventures International School and Productions, was invited to China by Zhao Bin to create a work of international scope for the Dalian Acrobatic Troupe of China. Nahat enlisted Paul Chihara to compose music for the production and subsequently to conduct the orchestra for the performances and recording. The premiere took place November 28, 2012 in Dalian, China. Yulan means a magnolia flower and is one of the earliest flowers to bloom in the spring in Shanghai. Paul Chihara has composed scores for more than 100 motion pictures and television series. He was awarded the Composer-of-the-Year by the Classical Recording Foundation in 2008 and is on the faculty at UCLA.

 "...Chihara draws all these amazing sounds out of the International Chief Philharmonic Orchestra of Beijing, a superb orchestra in every parameter. There is some really virtuoso writing here (listen to the sixth movement, for instance), and the orchestra is more than equal to the challenge. The sonics herein are of audiophile quality - this is certainly one of the best-sounding CDs I’ve heard in a long time. All in all, this Albany release is simply not to be foregone, and recieves my highest recommendation..."
