Anna Britten
Classic FM, February 2008

An unadulterated joy for Tan Dun fans, this DVD contains two short films. The first deals with the writing of the opera Tea, and includes interviews with the composer and his librettist Xu Ying. The second, the award­-winning Broken Silence, pays homage to five Chinese composers – Tan Dun included – who rose to fame after the Cultural Revolution, during a period when a vast 'intellectual hunger' seized a generation who had hitherto been forbidden from listening to Beethoven. Slow-moving in places, this DVD is nonetheless a sumptuous double bill, replete with beautiful shots of China and its people.
