Silk Baroque is Gramophone Editor's Choice of October!
"The sheng, masterfully played by Wu Wei, fits movingly into this Baroque programme."
"The cultural reciprocity of the disc is astounding - the listener begins to hear the Baroque in Wei's Chinese performing traditions, as well as to find elements of the Chinese aesthetic in the historically informed playing of Europe. There is an overwhelming - and emotional - sense of a land being shared, of common ground being marked out and danced upon."
