See Siang Wong was already interested in contemporary music at an early age. In his childhood he experimented at his parents’ piano, plucking the instrument’s strings and knocking the sounding-board. The contrast between the two compositions of Kelterborn and Nunes is typical of See Siang Wong’s recordings and concerts, in which he tries to build bridges between contrasts of introversion and extroversion, old and new and east and west. These works reflect each other in their contrasts, in that their characters shine forth even more strongly. The Litanies of Nunes, heard against the contrasting foil of Kelterborn’s miniatures, are akin to journeys through a new kind of landscape. Seen against the background of the Nunes, the Kelterborn seems like juggling a series of materials from European musical history. The listener is invited to join in this adventure.
