The Butterfly Lovers Violin Concerto was written in 1958 by He Zhanhao and Chen Gang, and is here presented on a 24k gold CD.
Musically the concerto is a synthesis of Eastern and Western traditions, although the melodies and overall style are adapted from traditional Chinese Opera
“Violinist Takako Nishizaki has a fine technique allied to good taste and sensitive all-around musicianship. She has made a career pursuing interesting and unusual repertoire, much of which has appeared on the Naxos/Marco Polo labels. Perhaps her most famous "discovery" was The Butterfly Lovers concerto.” Classics Today
