A Fine Introduction to Music of The Orient,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Very Best of Chinese Music (Audio CD)
Over the years I have heard snatches of Chinese music from watching television documentaries. And, after reading current reviews on this particular disc I decided to give it a try.
This CD compilation comprises of twelve tracks played by various ensembles and artists ranging from Hanshin Chinese Folk and Dance Ensemble, Pan Jing and Ensemble, Xiao Ying and the delightful singer, Wei Li.
I was quite impressed by the tracks offered and just to mention a few:
Sound from Afar (Miao Xiaoyun)
Little Boat (Heart of the Dragon Ensemble) which is a gem of a track.
Liang Xiao (Heart of the Dragon Ensemble)
Beautiful Nandu River (Wei Li) which is a beautifully haunting piece, one of the highlights of the CD.
Indeed, whilst listening to these tracks it brought back good memories of my trip to Singapore which I made during late spring of 2008.
Sound is very good, with a spacious and warm stereo sound, although it has been recorded at a high level.
An excellent introduction to music of the Orient.
