Gary Lucas – charmingly oddball pop songwriter, musical world traveler, utterly hellacious guitarist – is perhaps at his most hellaciously, charmingly cosmopolitan on this frankly amazing album, which finds him adapting popular Chinese songs that were originally recorded in the 1960s and which he heard and fell in love with during a sojourn in Taiwan in the mid-'70s. His girlfriend at the time had a cassette tape of such local superstars as Chow Hsuan and Bai Kwong, and it was, he says in his liner notes, "like almost no other music I had ever heard before." Twenty-five years later he put together this quirkily gorgeous tribute, which includes jaw-droppingly virtuosic fingerstyle guitar arrangements ("Mad World," "Wall") and song settings using guest vocalists. Among the best of the latter are the limpidly beautiful "Night in Shanghai" (again, note the guitar playing) and the country-flavored "I Wait for Your Return," which is simply a hoot. He's not playing this stuff for laughs, though; his genuine affection for the music comes through loud and clear, and even when he has fun with it he is obviously trying to do so in a way that brings its haunting loveliness to the fore. Very highly recommended.

Peter Eötvös about his Chinese Opera:
"My Chinese Opera has little to do with the authentic Chinese opera. In China, every province has its own theatrical style which is named after the province in question. Thenceforth this style remains unchanged in performance. Chinese Opera is music written specifically for theatrical and cinematographic presentation; it is the music of my own limited "province". The dedications to various directors and producers are at the same time character and tempo indications: the ceremonious stage build-up in Brook's work, Bondy's lyrically supple beauty, Grüber's streaming polyphony, and the hard, mountainous verticality of Chéreau."

Jia Daqun was born in Chongqing in August 1955. He is widely recognized as"one of the most gifted younger composers among those who immersed themselves in structuralism."(Frank Kouwenhoven: 'The Age of Pluralism, Mainland China's New Music (3).' Since 2000, Jia has been a member of Yoyo Ma's Silkroad Ensemble as one of their Composers in Residence. Jia's Fusion II, descibed by the composer as a 'concerto for Chinese Percussion and orchestra" is written in a broadly contemporary idiom - reminiscent of both Varese and Messiaen. While not self-consciously "Chinese," the ethnic instrumentation injects an unexpected jolt of color into this modernist score.
