ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
"Chinese Natural World" - Vol. I
Featuring Bamboo Flutes
The bamboo flute has been a central instrument in Chinese music for thousands of years. A simple piece of bamboo, it produces complex and evocative music in the hands of a master.
The high pitched, reedy sound is most common, but larger varieties with lower tones are used for meditation and reflection. Melodies here are drawn from minority tribes, Beijing Opera, ancient traditional sources, and famous composers of recent times.
Performed in natural environments such as rain forests, mountain glades, seashores, and the wide plains of the Steppes, they are performed by Chiu Siu Wai by on Ban-di, Qu-di, and Xiao, with Yeung-kum and Er-hu accompaniment.

* Chinese Natural World Vols. I, II, & III feature superb performances of the most famous and definitive melodies drawn from over 2000 years of Chinese culture, combined with natural ambience sound effects of the rain forests, plains, oceans, and rivers.

* Performances are by the finest young players working in the Asian performing arts, and feature exotic instruments, with bowed strings such as Er-hu, Ko-hu, and Jing-hu, woodwinds such as Qu-di, Xiao, and Ban-di, together with the famous Yeung Kum and Pei-pa.

* BIG SKY was created to bring together music and art from world cultures. It is dedicated to projects which will build bridges and lead toward better global understanding.

Chinese Natural Tranquility
The Chinese Natural World CDs, volumes 1 - 3, are great! Serene traditional Chinese melodies, featuring woodwind and stringed instruments, resonate amidst the peaceful sounds of nature: birds; ocean surf; rivers and gently trickling streams. Superb performances feature the bamboo flute, Erhu, and other wonderful instruments. These CDs create tranquil and peaceful ambience, making them superb for listening while you relax, read, or work. Each CD in the series has a different timbre, allowing you to select the volume that best suits your passion for listening. I highly recommend all three CDs in the Chinese Natural World series.
