Zhao Jiping can be rightly considered as China's John Williams. Having made his reputation scoring some of the most popular arthouse films from China's Fifth Generation Filmmakers (including "To Live", "Ju Dou", "Farewell My Concubine", and "Raise The Red Lantern", Zhao achieved international recognition following the release of the CD "Electric Shadows" (2000). The present recording is a suite compiled from the incidental music Zhao composed for the popular historic drama "Qiao's Grand Courtyard." Stylistically, think Morricone at his sweetest, with a Chinese flavor. The suite has become quite popular in China and is frequently programmed on concerts.
