AllMusic Review by

This is a re-release of an old Musical Atlas album mostly devoted to solo music, notably (though not solely) to stringed instruments: pipa lute, butterfly harp, and ch'in zither are all represented along with various wind instruments, all in particularly fine performances. The term "classical" may be unsuited to the Chinese tradition, but this is art music, old and new, of high order. (48+ minutes)
