And the third piece is called "Happy Valley - The 1997 Re-unification Overture" for violin, orchestra, and chorus which Vanessa-Mae wrote, in collaboration with Andy Hill, for the 1997 re-unification of Hong Kong with China. This last piece has somewhat a pop character, yet the mixture of pop character, old Chinese songs, and virtuosistic violin playing is quite interesting. A great talent!

    A cd for every collection

    Never before have I heard such beautiful Oriental pieces for the violin. I have never heard Vanessa Mae before, but the way she captures the very emotion of each piece is simple astounding and encouraging.As a violinist myself, she is a great performer to look up to.

    Magnificent!!!

    What a magnificent cd! All 3 pieces are just admirable!Butterfly Lovers is well-played with western fare while maintaining it's ''Chineseness''. The skill of the violinist is just breathtaking. Vanessa-Mae has simply captured the emotions of each piece.
