I consider myself extremely knowledgeable when it comes to all things music. I’ve played stringed instruments since age five, pretty much anything tuned in fourths or fifths. I’ve been behind the glass and engineered hundreds of recording sessions. I’ve been a record collector and audiophile for as long as I can remember.
So, when I saw your kind gift, I thought “Hmm, Chinese music. I’ve heard Chinese opera and it’s just not my thing, but let’s give it a spin”.
Well, I was completely and utterly blown away. Side one was just beautiful and when the tune from The Snow Lotus concluded, I was practically in tears. Side two was even better. I cannot tell you how pleasantly surprised I was by those recordings, both from a musical and fidelity perspective. Just wonderful, so thank you again.
