Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
This two disc set contains some absolutely beautiful Chinese classical pieces, played on a number of traditional Chinese instruments. All twenty-four tracks on this album are beautiful, calming and greatly evocative of Chinese culture. Although all the tracks presented on these discs are brilliant my personal favourites are `Flowing Water from the High Mountain' and `Autumn Moon at the Han Palace' both of which are utterly wonderful. The album also includes information on the artists and instruments used in the pieces. Anyone interested in Chinese music will love this album.

Format: Audio CD
Close your eyes and imagine the music that would accompany Chinese landscapes with cultivated and tiered mountainsides, winding rivers through lush, green valleys ... music played on instruments such as, a 7 stringed Chinese dulcimer (huquin), a one-stringed instrument played with a bow (erhu), a bamboo wind instrument (bawoo), a Chinese violin, plus the xiao (Chinese cymbals). This 2 CD set is filled with musical landscapes of exceptional beauty, grace, and oriental elegance. The paradox is 'it has extraordinary simplicity wrapped in subtle complexity.' Think of, a child chasing a butterfly, a rainbow that comes forth after a brief rainshower, wispy clouds that float across the sky, creating paisley patterns ... "simplicity wrapped in subtle complexity"! This unique music has a lyrical poetical quality, which includes harmony, balance, and artistic refinement ... similar to delicate Chinese porcelain, with intricate hand-painted designs.
The titles to some of the pieces suggest the "simplicity and subtle complexity" of the music:
"Purple Bamboo Melody", "Song of the Fisherman", "Rivers and Streams", "Spring Comes to Xiang River", "Spring Water Reflects the Moon", "Lake over the Autumn Moon", and "Hungry Horses Ringing Bells". If calm, soothing, ambient meditative oriental music is what you desire: this double CD set will exceed your expectations! Indeed, I have heard similar music played at Chinese Restaurants & was enormously pleased when I discovered these CDs! Erika Borsos (bakonyvilla)

Excellent value for money. Anyone who has been to sample the life out in China will instantly fall in love with this collection. This is the music that should be played in the restaurants here to create that feel. I recommend this without hestitation, close you eyes and drift back to the east.
