AllMusic Review by

Charming chamber pieces for various solo instruments were recorded in mainland China in the 1950s. The instruments involved are the guquin and zheng zithers, the pipa pear-lute, a diz flute and a guan oboe along with various viols. For some reasons -- political perhaps -- the otherwise informative notes don't name the musicians, though they are said to be famous.
