Notes & Reviews:

The period between the 1930s and 50s saw the flourishing of several new composers and lyricists in China. Their music, reflecting the art and traditional folk songs of China, was to win wide audiences all over China and even overseas. Chinese Evergreens is a compilation of popular songs selected from this period. The songs, originally in Mandarin, have been arranged into purely orchestral pieces. They retain the spirit, style and evocativeness of the original works, while giving them a universal appeal and relevance to the present time. Plum Blossoms in the Snow
