Disk in excellent condition.

This album is a fascinating insight (for non-Chinese listeners) into the world of officially-approved Chinese classical music. The title work is a piano concerto based on an enormously popular cantata composed by Xian Xinghai (1905-45) while he was a member of the Chinese resistance during the dark period of Japanese occupation. A committee of composers (one of whom is the soloist on this disc) then turned this heroic and nationalistic work into a concerto. The musical style is a glorious hybrid of Rachmaninov-style orchestration mixed with pentatonic, short-breathed folk-like Chinese themes.
