Venerated Patterns of China and Japan
CD -- LAS7395 Part of the
Lyrichord Archive Series -
Never before released recordings on CD from the Lyrichord
A beautiful studio recording from the 1980's by three master musicians and scholars who explore the rich and integral common threads linking the traditional music of China and Japan. Tim Liu is an award-winning master of the Di - the transverse flute of China. Liu studied and taught at the Chinese Culture University of Taiwan, and elsewhere in China and appeared as a soloist with the Taipei Municipal Chinese Orchestra. C. Ikehara and Lorie Brau are masters of the Shakuhachi and Shamisen, and studied extensively in Japan, and elsewhere in Asia. That they are also scholars of ethnomusicology allows them to explore the delicate interplay between the music of these two ancient cultures, in a manner that is as informed by their keen knowledge of musical history, as it is by their instrumental virtuosity. The result is an authentic cross-cultural experience in tradition that may not have been heard performed like this since the time of the Silk Road, though at one time must certainly have been a commonplace occurrence.
