Chinese Music for the Pipa

Wu Man, one of the foremost masters of the four-stringed Chinese lute, is equally comfortable playing traditional Chinese music, more contemporary forms, or even unprecedented stylistic fusions like her work with Bill Laswell and Liu Sola. A brilliant overview of Chinese music, her Western recording debut is a virtuosic solo performance of seven compositions that highlight her extraordinarily emotive playing. From lively folk suites and plaintive ballads to modern works by composers like Chen Yi, Wu Man handles each song with equal aplomb, creating a beautiful showcase for the myriad sounds a virtuoso can create with just ten fingers and four strings.
