[33]. World Music Library, KICC 5160 - Vietnam - Instrumental Music of Vietnam

Thursday, October 1, 2009 ·

The King Record Co. team spent a few days in Hanoi in March 1991, and produced four albums, two traditional and two of musicians trained at the Hanoi Conservatory playing modernized traditional music and new "ethnic" compositions inspired by Socialist arts policies in eastern Europe and China. Both this album and String Instruments of Vietnam (KICC 5121) consist of this sort of music. While some new compositions are interesting, the performances of "traditional" music lack the spices (nuances) that give Vietnamese music its individuality. Related to this, and including many of the same pieces played by the same musicians, are The Music of Vietnam, Volume 1.1 and 1.2 (Celestial Harmonies 13082-2 and 13083-2), as well as Vietnam: Reviving a Tradition (Playa Sound PS 65116). None of these albums has expert annotations either. ~ Terry Miller, All Music Guide
