«Taiwan Rhapsody», CD with the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, London and conductor Wen-Pin Chien for Sony Music Taiwan
Through his wife, the cellist Pi-Chin Chien, Fabian Müller has a strong relation with the land and culture of Taiwan for more than two decades. After several arrangements of Taiwanese folk songs for chamber music ensembles in the past years, the idea of bringing traditional songs into a western symphonic context was created in spring 2012. The result are two concerto-like works for cello and symphony orchestra: the «Taiwan Rhapsody» in three movements and the Suite «Six Taiwanese Songs» based on six traditional songs. Both works will be released soon on CD by Sony Music Taiwan. On this CD the works are played by the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra with Pi-Chin Chien as soloist and under the direction of well-known Taiwanese conductor Wen-Pin Chien.
January 23 and 24, 2015: World premiere of both works with the National Taiwan Symphony Orchestra NTSO .
