The Butterfly Lovers

cimg3059.JPGThe dance is nothing special, but the music she danced to is one of two my most favored concertos out of China.  I bought this CD in Wangfujing – I was just thinking how nice would it be to find a CD with both concertos: Sheng Zhongguo playing the Butterfly Lovers violin concerto and Yin Chengzong on the piano for Yellow River piano concerto while at the book store there, 🙂 .. a small wish came true.  I’ve made quite few copies for friends.  The music in this dance is played by erhu (I think) .. I would love to find another symphony orchestra playing those two concertos – how about wishing for NY Phil .. but haven’t, yet.  This CD’s recording and the orchestra could have been a bit better.
