S07 Ep29: Looking East, Part 3

Compass East

“In my pieces I aim to create something captivating, magical, touching, inspiring. It doesn’t matter if the work is meant for a young piano student or the audience of the National Ballet … I cannot be satisfied with my work unless I aim high.”  – Alexina Louie



We travel to Asia this week, to hear the partnership of traditional eastern and “classical” western music.  These artists create works that are familiar, while bringing something new to our ears.
