Nan Liang’s music was showcased at the ISCM World Music Days in Beijing, 2018. Along with several other Chinese composers, Nan Liang’s music was striking for its independence from musical values that are entrenched elsewhere. We recognize the emergence his authentic voice with a commission for the virtuoso guitarist Ögmundur Thor Johannesson, who is from Iceland, but is now based in China. Ögmundur performs extensively in Asia, but also in Europe and the Americas.
