Chinese traditional guzheng music
| PMPCD801 | released in 2005
extraordinary album is especially striking as it presents
the celebrated Liu Fang, acknowledged master of the Pipa,
as she now shines brightly in her mastery of the Guzheng.
In this collection she has taken some of the gems of both
and folkloric modes and given them an exquisite personal
expression that is both original yet well grounded in
a traditional musical base.
makes this album all the more valuable is the essay
on the Guzheng by the renowned ethnomusicologist and
sinologist, Lucie Rault (Musée de l'Homme,
Paris) including the very fine translations in both
English and French of some great relevant classic
poems from the Chinese."
