Cast in four continuous movements, Four Fragments is a ravishing and theatrical showpiece that maximizes the cellist's lyricism and fire, overflowing with declamatory and cadenza-like soliloquys clearly inspired by the composer's cultural multi-dimensionalism. Ilona Oltuski at writes, "New York Times critic Alan Kozinn, who keeps a close watch on Ruo's artistic development, describes the relationship between East and West in Ruo's music: 'As in many of his scores, Chinese articulation styles - sliding notes and gracefully bending tones - mingle freely with Western moves and diatonic harmonies.'" For advanced cellists. Duration: 13'30".
