CD Reviews

Unsurpassed Chinese Traditional Music
The Masked Reviewer | 05/30/2006
(5 out of 5 stars)

"The term "New Age" doesn't fit this CD. Anyone who knows GOOD Chinese classical music will tell you that A) it is extremely hard to come by, and B) that a better album than this one has not passed by in quite a while. To call it a "Chinese drum" album seems wrecklessly misleading, as it incorporates a full orchestra in peak performance form.

Composer, Zhang Fu-Quan, the featured percussion performer (Zhu Xiao-Lin) and the backing China Central Ensemble of National Music are in full form for this series of milestone recordings. A sampler of the best of the various Chinese music genres in many ways, THIS is good stuff, sinophile brethren (and sisters). No cheesy synthesizers or electric guitars here, just elemental instrumentation played with masterful virtuosity and heart.

Until I can personally prove otherwise, I am calling this 2-CD album unsurpassed in terms of quality and as an introduction to the BEST of Chinese traditional music."
