For hundreds of years the guitar has captivated listeners with its sound that can be as passionate as molten magma, or as graceful as a young maiden, allowing it to express an astonishing array of emotions and stories. In 1790, Germany penned an important chapter in the history of the guitar, adding the sixth string and retuning the notes, pushing this ancient instrument to the pinnacle of its development. On this compilation, the guitars of the German musicians are at times resonant and terse solos, at others they playfully intertwine with the string and wind instruments, but always exceptionally skilful and epic, and when combined with the lively percussion section, these popular Chinese folk tunes become fused with the precision of classic German culture for a final product which is fascinating to say the least. The 12 songs included on the album unfold before the listening in an impressive range of expressive prowess, from the simplistic and austere, to the complex and mesmerizing, to the deep and meaningful, presenting a poetic panorama of incredible proportion.
