Bao Yuankai is among China's most beloved classical composers. Writing, for the most part in the officially sanctioned 'Pentatonic Romanticism' idiom, Bao's music frequently draws upon regional folk songs and traditional Chinese culture for inspiration. Among his most popular works are the 24 sketches for piano known as "Chinese Sights and Scenes." Over the years, selections for this collection have been arranged for every conceivable combination of Chinese and western instruments, even vocal arrangements. Bao himself would orchestrate 16 of the pieces himself. The current collection features all 24 sketches in their original versions for solo piano, performed by Zhu Peibin.
From the composer's website:Yuankai Bao is a Chinese composer and music educator, who graduated from the Central Conservatory of Music in 1967. He has been a professor of the Tianjin Conservatory of Music since 1973. He also serves as the Deputy Director of the Composition Committee of the Chinese Musicians’ Association, the Director of Arts Institute at Xiamen University, and executive member of the China Sun Yat-sen Cultural Exchange Association. He was member of Music Research, one of the major academic journals in the country, as well as a member of the panel of judges for the composition competition “Golden Bell Awards”. In recognition of his dedication and achievements towards music education and composition, Mr. Bao was one of the first music educators to receive the special grant from the Chinese State Council and the “Outstanding Music Educator” Award from the Chinese Ministry of Culture.
