"Chinese Natural World" - Vol. II
Featuring Chinese Bowed Instruments
Bowed instruments of the Er-hu family are much loved in China, and require great sensitivity and technique to extract their best. This recording features Lawrence Wong playing traditional and popular Chinese melodies. Accompanied by Qu-di and Yeung-kum, we are taken into Beijing Opera, festivals, and the introspective world of long-gone artistes. The natural environments in which the music is performed were chosen to reflect the places where this music was originally heard.
