100 Years of Chinese Art Song with Jialiang Zhu and Friends

Jialiang Zhu's final DMA recital at the University of Toronto goes into depth with the history of Chinese art song, using selections chosen from Chinese-speaking communities around the world. Several the works are both world premieres and Canadian premieres. This performance took place while Toronto was in full lockdown, so an audience wasn't allowed into Walter Hall. I particularly the coordination of multiple camera units to create an highly immediate recital experience. 

Remember to turn on the English subtitles for Jialiang's excellent curation of texts in both Chinese and English. 

The full personnel: 

  • Jialiang Zhu, piano
  • Emily Zixin Lapin, soprano
  • Xin Wang, soprano
  • Maeve Palmer, soprano
