Voice on track #8 - Huang Bai
Playing time: 54'
Recording date: 1992 (Paris)
Here Dai Xiao-Lian plays a more speculative program than on her Hugo disc. Some of these pieces are relatively unknown and based on recent reconstructions, although they all have thorough historical pedigrees (dates are for publication sources). The playing style is also more provocative at times.
Of course, the later Hugo recital is a more polished (and longer) program, and to be preferred. However, I've made a listing for this disc as one of the few qin recitals on a major international label.
I enjoy the voice combination. Apparently this is something of a lost art, but hopefully it will be recovered.
To purchasing information for this disc.
