een prachtige balans in de instrumentatie (…) (…) Channel laat alsjeblieft meer komen van deze muziek

BBC music

There are 18 players in all and they are spread around the hall to give an enveloping acoustic for surround sound playback, with the listener sitting in the center of the space. This is tonal and very enjoyable music; don’t be afraid of being subject to typical Chinese opera music.
