More inspiring performances by master erhu (aka 'niko') player, Jia Peng Fang. Enter his serene and colorful world.
Just as the rainbow over the blue sky after a brief afternoon shower captivates us with its clear and delightful colors, the pastoral tones of the erhu (aka 'niko') and the surrounding sounds bring colors to our hearts, and let us dream of the eternal Asian continent.
To enhance your enjoyment of the music, incense sticks are included in the spine of the CD jewel case.
There are some instruments that seem to weep as soon as you touch them, and the Chinese erhu is one of them. Called a niko in Japan, it's a two-stringed instrument held in the lap and bowed like a violin. Played with lots of vibrato and note bends, the erhu's keening voice is one of yearning, loss and suffering with a distinct penchant for sentiment. It doesn't need much help in wrenching out emotions, so when producers Kazumasa Yoshioka and Seiichi Kyoda from the group Uttara Kuru, drench it in orchestral strings, it's like spooning sugar onto a hot fudge sundae. That's the foreboding scenario of the first track on Rainbow. The title track virtually slips out of the CD changer, skidding on the syrup. But Fang, a Chinese musician living in Japan, quickly regains his footing for "Light Dance," sending his erhu across a landscape of tablas and acoustic guitar. Rainbow alternates between this more evocative world fusion and soporifically sweet tracks. The vibrant dance of "In the Garden" is quickly washed by the nostalgic strings of "Night in Beijing". The wistful yearning of "Dawn", a spare duet with pianist Naoyuki Onda, shows that Fang and his erhu need little help in tugging the heartstrings. --John Diliberto
About the music on this CD: all tracks are composed by Seiichi Kyoda. Performed by Jia Peng Fang (Erhu). The music is extremely relaxing and very rich in terms of musical arrangements. There are marvellous solo guitar and string orchestra themes. This is my favourite album of Jia Peng Fang.
