Description
A city between cultures, transformed from the Pearl of the Orient to New China's boomtown, Shanghai is a place where timeless culture and traditions exist side by side with the driving force of the new; Marlo Scheder-Bieschin's large color photos depict both the bustle and electric color of Shanghai and also its places of quiet and reflection. The four audio discs here represent the continual blending of these influences as well—Tradition features orchestral works inspired by mountain songs and vernacular songs of the people; Romance offers oldies from the 1930s and 40s, while Modern contains new interpretations of those old Shanghai songs, and Tranquility musically interprets the roots from the Song Dynasty. The large-format album is an exploration in sight and sound, in which the page-filling photographs offer an evocative visual experience, while the superb recordings capture the atmosphere, energy, and spirit of the subject.
