Description

Soloists, Scottish Chamber Orchestra, Andrew Parrott - Judith Weir: A Night at the Chinese Opera

Judith Weir's colourful tale of 14th-century China is by turns comic, melodramatic and tragic. Set during the invasion of China by Genghis Khan, it tells the story of orphaned Chao Lin.

Reviews
