Notes & Reviews:

The 'Butterfly Lovers Violin Concerto', scored for solo violin and Western orchestra, is one of the best known of all contemporary Chinese compositions. It has become indelibly linked with Takako Nishizaki, whose seventh recording of this hugely popular work features on this disc. 'Songs and Dances from the Silk Road', by the Slovak-born Peter Breiner, is based on traditional melodies to be heard in the West of China, from where the famous Silk Road takes it course to the Occident.
