5 of 5 Stars!Julian Joseph, 12/20/2007
This recording features two of China’s most expressive instruments: the 4-stringed lute pipa and the 7-stringed classical long zither qin. Cheng Yu, winner of numerous music awards, including several for her reconstruction of the 5-stringed pipa (lost since the 8th century), is an exceptionally talented musician who plays both pipa and qin to stunning effect. “Flowing Water” brilliantly conveys all the moods of a river from a rushing torrent to a gentle flow, as well as the deeper significance of the music depicting the close friendship of a legendary master musician and the woodcutter who so greatly appreciated his music. The sound of the pipa in “Ambushed on Ten Sides” vividly portrays the sounds and emotions of a historic battle. Three of the pieces are accompanied by the bamboo flute, played by flute virtuoso Wang Ciheng and qin and flute master Li Xiangting. A superb CD and a “must buy”.
