5.0 out of 5 stars Refined playing of beautiful Chinese music 13 May 2012
By Adagio Cantabile - Published on
Format:Audio CD
I thoroughly enjoyed this yet another fine recording of Yundi Li, and have no reservation to recommend it to others interested in these timeless Chinese classics. Yundi breathed new life into the pieces through his magical fingures to give us these refreshing reditions.

It is interesting to compare this CD with that of one of Li's compatriots and colleagues, Mr. Lang's Dragon Songs, which contains a similar all-Chinese repertoire, in fact, several pieces are the same, including: The yellow river concerto and celebrating our new life (which was translated as "Happy Times" by Mr. Lang, perhaps to efface some of the political sentiments of the title to attract a wider audience). In fact, Mr. Lang has played some of the other pieces, such as Liu Yang River, colorful clouds chasing the moon, and my motherland in some other occasions and recordings. So it's interesting to see their styles in vivid contrast. I personally prefer Mr. Li's version much better. However, one hold back, though, is that in Li's version of the yellow river concerto, the orchestral support is much more inadequate compared with the luscious orchestral sound as heard in Lang's version. It is more likely a done-in by the still too young NCPA orchestra rather than a manifestation of Mr. Li's already refined artistry and musicmanship.

To say it all, if you enjoyed Mr. Lang's 2006 Dragon Songs album and look forward to some more treats in that style, look no further. Here Yundi has offered a much more interesting selection with wider representation of Chinese piano works. As qyu said, through Yundi's renewed interpretation some pieces have been abandoning their political color and can be appreciated by all for pure musical joy.

Personal favouraites:
In that place wholly faraway
Glowing red morningstar lilies
Pi Huang
Remote Shangri-la
Liu Yang River
Colorful clouds chasing the moon
Five Yunnan Folk Songs

4.0 out of 5 stars Very good performance 13 Mar 2012
By qyu - Published on
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Yundi Li's Version of Yellow River Concerto is one the best recordings that I have ever listened. From Chengzong Yin to Lang Lang and Yundi Li, the Yellow River has been abandoning its political color inside the music and involving more modern characteristics. Yundi explains the concerto in his own way and I personally love it!
5.0 out of 5 stars Love it! 15 April 2013
By Dolce, Lynn - Published on
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
As a professional musician, i have to say, i love Yundi, love his tone, and love his music, always delicate, so many detail, layers, and color changing.

If you are professional musician, don't miss no.7 Pi Hang, it mixes elements from Perking opera with contemporary composition technique, show you brand new "Perking Opera" in piano style, nice eastern and western music combination.
5.0 out of 5 stars Good music-making (when one looks/listends beyond 1st 4 tracks) 5 April 2013
By Gadgester - Published on
Format:Audio CD
In this Chinese-music-on-the-piano album, Yundi really shines on the tracks after the first four. First, the Yellow River Concerto is played rather nonchalantly by both Yundi and the orchestra. It's really sad that of the tens of thousands of professional performances of this great piece over the years, Yin Chengzong's very first TV recording remains by far the best and most definitive. Lang Lang never matched that magic (in fact neither has Mr. Yin) and Yundi's playing is just too flat-sounding, even though technically he does a very good job, unlike Mr. Yin who often commits obvious technical errors in his recordings. If only he could emulate some of Mr. Yin's expressive power...

The solo tracks on the rest of the album, on the other hand, are played most beautifully, balancing the simple, single-threaded melody structure in traditional Chinese music with the expressive power of the piano. I don't know who did the arrangements here, but the end result is each piece is presented in a well-balanced manner. Of course, whether an utterly Western-only listener can accept this kind of music, I know not, but as I'm personally familiar with both Eastern and Western music, I find Yundi's treatment a delicious treat, and better than Lang Lang's playing of some of the pieces presentd here. (Ultimately, though, Chinese traditional music does sound better on Chinese traditional instruments...)

This is a good album to own for open-minded listeners, Yundi fans or not.
