CD Reviews

It's a good choice to looking 'Chinistic'
Chung-Whun Chung | Seoul, Republic of Korea | 11/18/2000
(4 out of 5 stars)

"This interest CD contains two Chinese orchestral suites. First is The Mermaid(composed by Wu Zuqiang and Du Mingxin). It organized by many group dances in the original ballet. Maybe you listen this suite, you think "It's a Tchaikovsky's Ballet Suite in Chinese style!" probably. But its characteristic and exotic atmosphere has only in this work. Other work is Harvest Scenes(composed by Chu Wei). This symphonic suite's material is Chinese farmland's peaceful scenes. Its principal musical idioms are similar to the Mermaid. But it has more powerful(especially in Prelude and Epilogue) and poetic. This recording was made by Naxos with Gumma Prefecture in Japan's orchestra(Gumma Symphony Orchestra) and conductor Lim Kektjiang(maybe Sino-Indonesian). Orchestra's members are Japanese but they makes Chinese local colors exciting. Perhaps you seek more Chinese contemporary classical music, I recommend this CD for you."
