You Lan

Gottschalk, Gunda / Xu Fengxia: You Lan (Victo)
Label: Victo    
Released in: Canada    

"Impressive in its own way was the duo of violinist Gunda Gottschalk and guzheng virtuoso Xu Fengxia, in whose hands contrasting roots in Western and Eastern classical musics stretched to become a common fabric, an expressionist ground in which strings and voices could move from song-like repose to chattering, screaming nightmare."-Stuart Broomer, Musicworks.
