This excellent album by Tony Chen Lin introduces a terrific musical talent to audiences here and abroad, featuring the music of Bartok, Bach, and Schumann's magnificent Humoreske.

Life seems to be an endless stream of unforeseen digressions; it is often difficult to distinguish them - when they occur, what they depart from, where they lead to. Seen in this light, the realisation of a debut album has certainly been a happy and fortuitous digression in my life, and I am thrilled to present it here on Rattle.” — Tony Chen Lin
