East meets West Archive
“Spring Sounds, Spring Seas” = JAMES NYORAKU SCHLEFER: Haru No Umi Redux; Shakuhachi Concerto; DARON HAGEN: Koto Concerto: Genji – James N. Schlefer, shakuhachi/ Yumi Kurosawa, 20-string koto/ Orch. of the Swan/ Kenneth Woods & David Curtis – MSR Classics
Some of the most attractive East-meets-West musical exercises that I’ve heard on disc.
Chinese Recorder Concertos “East Meets West” – TANG JIANPING: Fei Ge; BRIGHT SHENG: Flute Moon; MA SHUI-LONG: Bamboo Flute Concerto; CHEN YI: The Ancient Chinese Beauty – Michala Petri recorder /Copenhagen Philharmonic/Lan Shui – OUR Recordings
All four recorder concertos are fascinating, most enjoyable, and quite different from one another.
