Product Notes

Fan Tsung-pei, cellist and genius in musical accompaniment, teams up with Li Che-yin, a musician from a long line of harpists, in the interpretation of 15 familiar classics in duet style. Styles they navigate span the Baroque, classical and romantic periods to those of the modern day in expressing an elegant ambience within a feeling of nostalgia. Through the sentimental story expressed in song by the cello and the delicate softness of the harp's responses, they have produced a romantic poetry in duet.
