Review

The Beijing New Music Ensemble's debut recording treads on multicultural ground and is both specific and broad in its cultural reach. The opener, Zhou Long's Su (Tracing Back), performed in its original version for vertical flute and guqin, is a colorful display of a traditional instrument. I was haunted by the feeling that every phrase was one that I had heard before. Pianogongs, also by Long, transforms the piano into a percussive instrument. The quick repetitive lines on one of the most important instruments in western tradition are meant as drum rolls. The use of the opera gongs on top of the piano allow the listener to hear the "performing force of the Beijing Opera percussion ensemble". Chen Yi's Monologue (Impression on "The True Story of Ah Q") is a work for solo clarinet. Keith Lipson has a solid tone and, in this case, storytelling ability. The clarinet sings as Lipson uses a slight vibrato on held tones. Yi's Romance of Hsiao and Ch'in is a light-hearted dance on the pentatonic scale for violin and piano. Chinese Ancient Dances, two movements for clarinet and piano, is, in the first movement, a preparation and, in the second, a whirling exercise up to the clarinet's highest register. -- American Record Guide, Kraig Lamper, November-December 2009
