Composer and pianist Wang Lu was born in the Xi’an, China, the country’s ancient capital. Brought up in a musical family with strong Chinese opera and folk music traditions, her compositions are inspired by both of these forms, and fused with urban environmental sounds. Wang’s works have been performed internationally by the Ensemble Modern, The Minnesota Orchestra, The American Composers Orchestra and Holland Symfonia, to name just a few. As a spring 2019 Fellow at the Academy, Wang is working on new pieces, and she’ll be performing works from Urban Inventory in the city as well. Producer Tony Andrews sat down with Wang to discuss her work.
