 A certified demo CD ... June 4, 2012 By D. Leung (Hong Kong, N/A) See All My Reviews "In many respects this follow up CD of the first album is much better although there is a significant shrinkage of its number of tracks. All tracks are carefully selected and their sound was full bodied and modern. This CD really sounds like a Delos demo disc and it can be described as a certified demo CD of classical music.
There is a Chinese saying, "the concise is better than the plentiful" and this CD demonstrates it well.
