Editorial Reviews

Product Description

Sleeping Lotus contains eleven serene guqin and xiao improvisational tracks. These tracks blossom like musical haiku, with each note capturing a world of emotion, each song bringing deep peace. The guqin and xiao, or seven-stringed zither and bamboo flute dating back more than 3,000 years to the origins of Chinese music, are said to be the perfect complement to each other, as is Sleeping Lotus the perfect complement to an interlude of relaxing, meditating, or dreaming.

This is the first recording of improvisational guqin music (pronounced Goo Chin) ever made in the West. Improvisational guqin music - once an important part of guqin playing - died out over 1000 years ago. Professor Li has rescued this lost art and is one of the few people to improvise on the guqin, and certainly the only master player to do so. With the exception of two recordings by Professor Li in China there has never been a full CD of improvisational Guqin.
