Product Notes

Autumn Cloud- journey with her Pipa Silk Road Music's new CD that focuses on innovative compositions for the Pipa (Chinese lute) that reflect the vast musical experience founder Qiu Xia He has gathered in Canada and in her travels. As a musician, Qiu Xia has developed a unique style that combines traditional techniques, Western harmony and a great understanding of world folklore that she has gained in a lifetime of playing music. The CD project seeks to extend the language of the Pipa and provide a refreshing look at this extremely versatile instrument. Instrumentation: Pipa, vocal by Qiu xia He Guitar, Oud, Flutes by Andre Thibault Guitar, percussion by Celso Machado Ruan by Zhimin Yu Erhu by Jun Rong Tabla by Stefan Cihelka Bohuslav Martinu Philhoarmonic Orchestra The material recorded on this CD reflects those experiences and speaks those languages: from traditional Chinese to a Celtic reel; from a folk song to a contemporary classic; from a Spanish guitar piece to a flamenco rumba; add a Brazilian baiao, a modern blues and a Pipa concerto.This musical journey includes some compositions by their friends as well as many pieces written by themselves. Like their live performances, this album offers music from around the world which they love to play. Autumn Cloud is Silk Road Music's 3rd recording. They are a professional Chinese ensemble that has been touring and recording since 1991. It has a consistently successful rapport with audiences and their last two CDs have won Best World Music Album at the West Coast Music Awards. Their debut CD, Endless, was also nominated for a JUNO. This Autumn Cloud CD was nominated for a Canadian Folk Music Award for' Best Ensemble' and 'Pushing Boundaries'. '...While cross-cultural fusion is currently trendy, poor musicianship is often it's sloppy hallmark. That is not the case here. Qui Xia's own rigorous training results here in flawless execution... Spare and restrained framework keep it from sounding chaotic, however. The result is lovely, a must for Chinese-music fans...'
