Tales From The Cave

Editorial Reviews

New York Times - Allan Kozinn
The title work, for Chinese string instruments (an erhu and a banhu) and Chinese and Western percussion, uses vibrant folk themes to evoke dances depicted in ancient cave frescoes near Dunhuang, in northeastern China. Folk music is also the basis of "Valley Stream," for dizi (bamboo flute), guanzi (a reed instrument), zheng (zither) and percussion.

Music From China, an ensemble devoted to both traditional and contemporary works by Chinese composers, plays Mr. Zhou's music with a fluid virtuosity.
