From the Other Sky
Composer: Wang Jie
Composer Bio: At the forefront of a new wave of Chinese-American composers, Wang Jie has emerged as a distinctive musical voice. Elegant and elementally clear, her works are powerfully engaging, richly orchestrated and rhythmically vibrant. She spins a few notes into large music forms - a rare trait in today's composers. The New York Times calls her work "introspective" and the Pittsburgh Tribune Review describes it as "scrupulously crafted composition that embraces both Chinese and Western modern classical expression."

Born in Shanghai shortly after the Cultural Revolution, Wang Jie was raised during an era of breathtaking economic expansion. She was a piano prodigy by age five, and a scholarship from the Manhattan School of Music brought her to the U.S..
