Notes & Reviews:

"...Tan Dun's music, as usual, gathers in elements from everywhere and every time yet still sounds completely personal. Voices are often asked to swoop and warble in altissimo like the traditional instruments of Dun's native China; the instrumental element comprises a jangling, dazzling surface through which brass erupt. This constant plasticity of style places unique and considerable demands on interpreters, and I can't imagine this performance being bettered..." -Hunt, Classic CD
