For most people, China evokes the ideas of pottery, jade, porcelain, bronzes and delicious food, but its marvellous music is virtually unknown to outsiders, with the exception of Peking opera, a modern development. The best Chinese music stands comparison with the best music of any civilization. Were it not for its inaccessibility, partly for political reasons but mainly because it was never intended for a wide audience, being essentially private, it would now, through the medium of the gramophone, most probably have reached the West and made its impact. In China, records of the finest musicians are produced, but are generally not available in the West. With this album, a beginning has been made to fill the gap. It includes unaccompanied music for three great classical stringed instruments, a composition for notched flute with lute accompaniment, and an exquisitely pungent orchestral piece with an oboe playing the melody.

Includes leaflet.
