Check out our debut release from acclaimed pianist Rajung Yang. A special affinity for the neo-primitive fire of Bartok and Prokofiev led Ms. Yang to envision a CD anchored by sonatas of these composers. Both works maybe described as "new wine in old bottles" as Bartok and Prokofiev fiercely developed new ways to build harmony while retaining traditional architecture to build their forms. To complete this fascinatingly balanced recording, Rajung Yang offers four more works that also look both to the past and the future, like the title, Janus.
