Peter Thorup's 1978 Rejsen Til Kina [temporary only]





"Poems from China" by Tom Kristensen first published in 1922.  Music by Thorup.

Looking over the information on this release I was surprised to see it was released to CD some time ago, accordingly, I won't have a link....

A nice surprise to see Knudsen on keys.  (Of course I posted his masterpiece Anima some time ago in a lossless.)

The first track really sets the tone here:





I think we should all be grateful that this doesn't descend-- not even for a moment, or note-- into the pentatonic simplistic silliness so typical of "chinese"- influenced music.
