This is a delicate, soothing, mastery of East meeting West. My favorite selection on this CD is "Spinning," which is so very beautiful. I think that anyone would do well to add this to their collection.

I own more than a dozen performances of this lovely Chinese concerto, including four by Mdme Heymann. Suffice to say that her four readings make up for the bottom four of them - and I must say that this, her latest rendition, is the worst by a considerable margin.

Advancing age has done nothing to improve this violinist's thin tone and mediocre technique, nor her poor pacing. Her latest Butterfly Lovers Concerto is achingly slow, soggy & mushy in the extreme. Nishizaki's patent mediocrity is matched by the routine, unengaged playing of the New Zealand Symphony. James Judd and his players sleepwalk through the motions, and their unfamiliarity with the music is very easy to spot. Superior sound (for Naxos anyway) is no help here!

If you want a recording of this lovely work, consider the vastly superior Gil Shaham, accompanied by the Singapore Symphony under Lan Shui. He has the tonal beauty, sureness of touch and general intelligence in pacing that Nishizaki lacks. Plus, his recording is coupled with a very good performance of the Tchaikovsky concerto, while the Nishizaki is, somehow suitably, accompanied by a flat, harmless compendium of Chinese folk tunes, poorly arranged by Peter Breiner.

A lovely recoding...not as breathtaking as the live performances I've heard, but divine to be able to hear this piece at will...no ticket required

The Butterfly Lovers Concerto wafted out of my car window one afternoon, pulling me gently into the particular joy one experiences when coming upon something unexpected and totally beautiful. It's serendipitous, that's for sure, and this recording sent me to order a copy before the day was over. If you read these comments while just browsing, do yourself the uncommonly great favor of ordering this concerto for yourself. If you remember this recording, but it faded away and never bought it, do it now. We can do worse than to fill our lives with beautiful music.

Bonjour,
L'article avait une pochettes bourrée de logos comme s'il sortaitb d'u bibliothèque.
Il m'a fallu récupérer une de vos jacquette et la remplacer.
De plus ce vendeur à la délicatesse de le proposer come neuf et non emballé.
Un conseil de sage éjectez le. Parce que j'imagine qu'il doit agir de mêm avec tout le monde.
C'est une honte.
J'ai deux comptes.
Dans l'imédiat, le vôtre est prioritaire et je travail sur tous les paramètres d'achats et des sous-traitant que vous utilisez.
Je n'ai pas utilisé encore le deuxième qui est un de vos gros concurrents en matière musicale et dont le choix dépasse de loin le vôtre puisqu'il sous-traite directement avec Naxos et donc peut avoir un panel de musique internationale illimité. Sans pub, c'est Classic on line. Les prix sont identiques aux vôtres.
Essayer de bien trier sur le volet les revendeurs où passez-vous en.
Je préfère quand je passe une commande m'adresser à vous qu'à des revendeurs auxquels j'ai de moins en moins confiance.
Merci par avance

The music is truly lovely, as expected. The quality of the recording is also fine and without fault; very happy with this item.

I bought this CD from Amazon.com for the Butterfly Lover's Concerto, but to my enormous joy, the other tracks are equally delightful. I play this on commutes and it is greatly and surprisingly soothing.
