About this Recording

CHEN, G. / HE, Z.H.: Butterfly Lovers Piano Concerto (The) / CHU, W.H.: The Yellow River Piano Concerto (Jie Chen, New Zealand Symphony, C. Kuan)

The Yellow River Concerto is one of the most popular of all Chinese works, a richly melodic exploration of scenic variety, and a forceful expression of patriotic pride. Written in 1958 by Chen Gang and He Zhanhao, The Butterfly Lovers Violin Concerto has achieved world renown for its moving and beautiful synthesis of Western and Eastern traditions. In 1985 Chen Gang made an arrangement for piano and orchestra, played on this recording in the edition by the brilliant international soloist Chen Jie.
