5 of 5 Stars!Julian Joseph, 12/01/2008
This is the latest of many wonderful recordings by the superb musicians of the Silk and Bamboo Ensemble. It opens with a beautiful instrumental ensemble arrangement of two popular Chinese folk songs, both called Jasmine Flower. One of the highlights is the guanzi (a double reed instrument) solo Melody of Yangguan, a famous farewell song. This performance, with the haunting, saxophone-like sound of the guanzi, is very moving. Another highlight is Lament at Changmen Palace, played on the guqin. The guqin featured during opening ceremony of the 2008 Beijing Olympics, so is perhaps the instrument most newcomers to Chinese music are likely to have heard before. The selection of music on the recording is very varied, and the interpretations are all fresh and appealing. This is an excellent introduction to the traditional music of China. If you enjoyed the CD by the Silk String Quartet (EUCD 2095) published by ARC Music in 2007, you will enjoy this one too. I recommend it to all lovers of good music.
