The strongly featured string & wind sounds of the rebab & suling give this recording a distinctive profile. These instruments generally go along with vocal performances, but here provide a similar sort of texture in the foreground of a smaller brass ensemble.
Although some newer recordings have even better sound, this recording continues to be quite appealing.
The first track is now one of the most-recorded gendings.
