Notes & Reviews:

"The primary appeal of Chinese Piano Favorites, however, is not as much in the music -- which is very, very good -- as it is in the pianist, Jie Chen. Her projection of this repertoire, unfamiliar as it is to Western ears, affords it a sense of variety and richness of color that lifts it out of the realm of the exotic and into a comfort zone that seems cozy, even familiar. That is no small achievement in itself, and as an album Naxos' Chinese Piano Favorites makes for an appealing and highly absorbing listen; some may even find parts of the album quite relaxing to experience in the evening hours, perhaps with a glass of brandy and a bubble bath." -All Music Guide
