Highly tuneful, virtuosic piano and instrumental music from the years of the Great Chinese Cultural Revolution. Repertoire is almost completely unknown in the West. Album features officially sanctioned ”propaganda music,” compositions originating from tribal Chinese minorities, and works by politically persecuted and even imprisoned composers. Several tracks feature Tian's highly evocative arrangements for piano, accompanied by traditional Chinese instruments like the pipa (lute), bamboo flutes, and Chinese hand drum.
Tian Jiang was born in Shanghai during the great famine that was part of the Cultural Revolution. His father, a singer of Western opera, and his mother, a dentist, were condemned as "intellectuals." Although a child prodigy, beginning his study of piano at five and his performance career at seven, Tian was denied admission to music school because of his family background. He made his professional debut at age thirteen at the Shanghai Spring International Music Festival, and graduated from the Shanghai Conservatory of Music. One of the first artists allowed to leave China after the Cultural Revolution, Tian continued his studies at the Juilliard School, and now resides in New York City.
