Description: 41 of the 71 minutes here are of new recordings. Zhou Long's 26-minute concerto from 2008 applies his delicate blend of Eastern and Western impressionism, which will be familiar to those of you who remember The Deep, Deep Sea, to depictions/impressions of "Metal", "Wood", "Water", "Fire" and "Earth" while Chen Yi's The Golden Flute (1997/2008) is a three-movement concerto in which the composer imitates the sound of the bamboo flute and the clay ocarina-like instrument of her native China and which require the dazzling technique with which the soloist here is associated. Sharon Bezaly (flute), Singapore Symphony Orchestra; Lan Shui. Deep Deep Sea originally released 2007, Flute Moon originally released 2000.
