When a classical guitar falls in love with Chinese folk music, when their fusion gives rise to resonance between two cultures, when age-old strings resonate beyond traditions. When Sound becomes Music.
Here, by way of celebrating the opening up to the world of this great millenial country,
Pascal Bournet offers us 16 musical pieces
representing several Chinese provinces,
all performed on the guitar and in certain cases accompanied by a violin.
Here, in keeping with the spirit of his previous albums,
the register of his favourite instrument
finds an original opening.
