Wang Lu's Urban Inventory Reviewed by The New Yorker

"I’ve listened at least a dozen times to the composer Wang Lu’s new album, 'Urban Inventory' (New Focus Recordings), and remain happily lost in its riotous maze of ideas and images. Every moment is vividly etched, drenched in instrumental color, steeped in influences that range from ancient Chinese folk music to the latest detonations of the European avant-garde. A starry array of ensembles, including the Ensemble Intercontemporain, Alarm Will Sound, and the International Contemporary Ensemble, bring the music to rambunctious life.
