Preview in The News Tribune

Jen Graves wrote a nice preview of my upcoming choral work Surrender: A T’ai Qi Cantata. Here’s an excerpt:

“Au Yong is a Seattle native with a wide and sturdy artistic grounding, who recently returned to the city. He first worshipped Bach and Chopin, but gradually switched—from piano to percussion, from reverence to questioning and from one cultural source to a melange.”
