Notes & Reviews:

"Born in 1955 and raised under the shadow of the Cultural Revolution, Bright Sheng studied music from an early age, participating in a dance troupe for seven years before entering the Shanghai Conservatory. His music successfully brings together the cultures of Asia and the West. This appealing disc was made in that remarkable cultural melting-pot, Hong Kong." - Editor's Choice, Gramophone
