About this album

Because it sounds great, is easy to learn, light to carry and inexpensive, the Dizi (Chinese Bamboo Flute) is one of the most popular Chinese instruments in Asia. The Dizi (also called D’Tzu or Zhu Di), is a side blown wind instrument made of Bamboo. The Dizi has a very simple structure: 1 blowhole, 1 membrane hole, 6 finger holes, and two pairs of holes in the end to correct the pitch and hang decorative tassels. Most special about the Dizi is the “Mo-Cong” (membrane hole), which is located between the blowhole and 6th finger hole. The Mo-Cong was invented in the Tang Dynasty (618-907 AD) by Liu Xi, and he named the flute the “Seven Star Tube”. What makes the Mo-Cong special is its thin membrane covering. Some people mistake this membrane for rice paper, but it is actually made from the inner tube of a bamboo or reed plant. When the Dizi is played, the membrane vibrates with the Dizi, producing a sweet, bright tone. In addition it helps to deliver the Dizi sound far away. Liu Xi stated the purpose of his great invention as “To help produce better tone quality”. You can also adjust the membrane to get the just the “right” tone for the specific musical mood.

Opus

Grace l'excellente série Channel of China consacre de la musique traditionnelle chinoise. Avec Tang Jun Qiao, le Dizi se metamorphose en voix si se pare de la posie la plus sensuelle que l'on puisse imaginer. La jeune asiatique nous livre ici un Super Audio CD en pur DSD de toute beaut.

Audiophile Audition

This new disc from Channel classics was a revelation, and may very well be the best collection of Asian traditional music I'v ever heard!! While many performances of traditional Asian music may seem a chore to get trough, this disc is anything but that and I found its 63-munite runtime passed all too quickly. The recording is superb, as usual from Channel Classics. This one has definitively peaked my interest - I'm ready to hear the rest! Very highly recommended

Tang Jun Qiao kann jedoch einen faszinierenden Einblick in eine lebendige Musikkultur geben, die auch durch zeitgenssische Komponisten neue Impulse bekommt. Mit ihrer auerordentliche guten Klangqualitt untersttzt die dabei die klangliche Entfaltung der Instrumente und verleiht ihnen eine geradezu plastische Wirkung
