Chinese Classics

Naxos’s CHINESE CLASSICS series presents fascinating classical music by leading Chinese composers including Ding Shande, Hua Yan-jun, Lu Wen-cheng, Ma Si Cong, Ren Guang, Tang Bi-guang, Wang Lishan and Zhu Jianer. The music of a number of these Chinese composers is performed by pianist Chen Jie, on her album Chinese Piano Favourites. Several decades of musical interaction between Eastern and Western traditions has resulted in many highly acclaimed compositions which combine and juxtapose instrumental sounds and musical techniques from both hemispheres within the ever-broadening ambit of Western classical music. A wide range of other Chinese music titles is also available in Marco Polo’s Chinese Music range.
