One of the most exciting voices in New Music... Liang is an important musical philosopher, coming into mature expression.

Interview by Magnus Lindberg before the world premiere of "Verge" with the New York Philharmonic.                         

“A highlight [of New York Philharmonic's Contact!] was Lei Liang's 'Verge' for 18 strings. With musicians divided into four sections arranged spatially across the stage, Liang builds on the concept of lines converging and diverging across several sections.” 
-Brian Wise, The Strad


“There is little that is routine or meek about the music of Lei Liang. It is a strong cup of coffee, indeed. But for those inclined to excitements and stimulation in their music-making, his is an important young voice. All of the performances are vital and polished, and the recorded sound is superbly realistic.”

“…a disc to play and play again.”
