Notes & Reviews:

In his 'A Tramp Abroad', Mark Twain mocked the mighty Hoforgan at Lucerne as a tourist attraction. 'Dancing on a Bridge' turns it into the location for a breath-taking encounter between East and West: the delicate, lute-like Chinese pipa and its subtle tone-colors meet an instrument weighing 20 tons and carrying with it 350 years of history. Featuring unique arrangements of Chinese masterpieces and Swiss cult songs, this release is the result of a co-operation between Yang Jing, the uncrowned queen of the pipa, and Wolfgang Sieber, collegiate organist at Lucerne.
