The Silk Road connecting China with Europe since ancient times, has always been a medium of cultural exchange between East and West – which reflects the resulting 1955 orchestral suite Silk Road by the Japanese composer Ikuma Dan. Similarly, this also happens in the other orchestral works on this CD.
