Scottish pianist and composer performs his own work alongside refined Mozart and folk-inspired Rachmaninoff and Bartók.

Mozart Sonata in C, K. 330
Rachmaninoff Variations on a Theme by Corelli, Op.42
Yang Waves
Bartók Piano Sonata BB.88, Sz.80 (1926)


Yuanfan Yang begins with the seeming simplicity of Mozart at his most refined. The theme by Corelli on which Rachmaninoff based his dazzling variations is actually a 15th-century folk tune, La Folía, that swept Europe like a craze, inspiring countless composers. Bartók too was inspired by folk music, as his rhythmically restless Sonata shows. And Yuanfan’s own impressionistic Waves borrows its harmonies from the East
