Author Lulu Wang selected poetry from the Tang and Song Dynasty which are considered the golden age of Chinese arts and culture. Each of the poems reflects the feeling of the trigrams and the related musical piece. By weaving the poetry into the music, the album becomes a tapestry of experiences and moods reflecting upon the eight trigrams. The music is dedicated to Maya Fridman, an alchemist who, through her deep musical understanding can turn any music into gold. Her sound on the cello speaks from soul to soul. Working with Maya and Lulu on this project has been a dreamlike experience for which I am ever grateful.

My meeting with writer Lulu Wang happened on April 18, 2018, at the presentation of her latest book. As we talked in the middle of a crowded room, her voice sounded like beautiful music to me. It stayed in my head like an unresolved mystery until I met Marion von Tilzer. It was just a couple of months later that we sat down to talk about conscious dreaming, music, and magic. Since I have been in love with her music long before, our meeting didn’t feel like a pure coincidence. It brought me the idea to introduce Marion and Lulu, and together delve into the unfathomable world of I Ching. That exploration has been one of the most magical things that happened to me. I wish I could capture all the conversations I had with Lulu Wang. She knows how to express in words what is beyond words, even beyond music. In that space beyond Marion composed her Ten Songs of Change: each song is like a window to a world of a nature element. Marion is not only an outstanding composer but a great pianist as well. It was my long-lasting wish to play together with her. Thank you, Marion, and Lulu, for such a precious gift.

1 review for Ten Songs of Change

    I really enjoyed this! What attracted me to this album in the first place was the melding of east and west and how western music was inspired by Chinese poetry.

    The music and the performance are both so appropriate to the various elements that are represented on the album. All it left for me to do was the close my eyes and enjoy.

    Highly recommended!
