Album Notes
LING-JU LAI, a native of Taiwan, has garnered consistently favorable reviews of her creative interpretations of Baroque keyboard music, particularly the music of Johann Sebastian Bach. The Baltimore Sun writes, “The depth of the sound sinks in with startling poignancy as Lai lets the notes linger long in the air… a moment of musical insight to savor.”

In this solo recording, Lai presents two of the most beloved and frequently performed keyboard concertos by Bach. The Italian Concerto is known as one of Bach’s most original contributions to the concerto repertoire for a solo instrument. And the D Minor Concerto, presented here for solo piano, highlights Lai’s virtuosity.

Lai recently performed the D Minor Concerto as a featured soloist in São Paulo, Brazil with the Bachiana Filarmônica Orchestra under the direction of celebrated Bach interpreter and conductor, Mr. João Carlos Martins. She has been named “Rising Star” by two of Taiwan’s most prestigious organizations, The National Taiwan Concert Hall and The National Taiwan Symphony Orchestra. She has performed major keyboard literature of JS Bach at notable musical festivals and venues across Asia, the United States, and Europe, both at the harpsichord and the piano. Concert artist and co-producer Hilary Demske remarked during an interview with UVU Newsroom: “The opportunity to hear a solo harpsichord recital with an artist of Ling-Ju Lai’s caliber is extremely rare. Often even musicians are not aware of the expressive power that the instrument has in the hands of the right performer. Ling-Ju Lai’s playing will transform the way you hear the harpsichord.”

Ling-Ju Lai received graduate degrees in Piano and Harpsichord Performance from the University of Michigan and the Eastman School of Music, where she was awarded the Performer’s Certificate for her excellence in performance.
