Notes & Reviews:

"While several of the pieces are arrangements of folksongs, most are relatively modern compositions which make extensive use of traditional material or styles, although the tonalities are very Western. This is not so much because several of the compositions included piano in their original scorings, but because Jiang wanted to demonstrate that Chinese music can by played on Western instruments. Throughout, the writing is fluid, nimble and glowing." - Barry Witherden, Gramophone
