Hommage à Chen Zhong - Chen Zhong
Chen Zhong (1919-2002) was a great master of Chinese music, a multi-instrumentalist particularly renowned for his skill on the xun and xiao flutes. He first gained international recognition in 1994, at the age of 75, with an overseas tour that included Japan, France and Switzerland. Zhong was recorded by Radio France in 1995 (Ocora C560090) and it was the success of that association that led to the release of these serene and intimate ensemble recordings, previously only available in China.
