While many western composers have been fascinated and inspired by Asian music, their counterparts in Asia have adapted their musical language to the western modern and have tried to interfuse this with Asian sensations. “Asia” is present in contemporary music in many ways. The recordings on this CD combine works by renowned composers who have each, in their own way, determined the face of contemporary Asian music. The first work is by John Cage who founded and left a lasting impression on the western way of viewing Asian thinking and Asian aesthetics.

A co-production with Radio Bremen
