Notes & Reviews:

"A Chinese orchestra for Busoni's 1905 'Turandot' Suite, with its authentic Chinese melodies, seems rather a good idea. And the HK Philharmonic under Samuel Wong brings out the barbaric colouring, the harsh ceremonial of Busoni's highly individual take on Gozzi's play better than any performance I've heard. I very much hope that this is the first instalment of a Busoni series." ***** - Calum MacDonald, BBC
