Acoustic World - China
This fascinating disc from China is the second release in the Acoustic World series and presents classical repertoire led by four exponents of different traditions: Lin Youren, Wu Man, Li Jinwen, and Xuan Ke. Wu Man, the internationally renowned pipa virtuoso, is arguably Chinese classical music’s most famous artist. Now resident in New York she is as active in contemporary music as in the traditional repertoire, pushing the boundaries of Chinese music. Three exquisite pieces from her ensemble appear on this disc.
Wu Man (pipa), Lin Youren (qin zither) & Li Jinwen (guanzi & percussion)
Dayan Ancient Music Association, Xuan Ke
