Madam Hui Fen Min is regarded as the most esteemed master of Erhu artistry in China. Over the years, Hui Fen Min has made many recordings for quite a few labels in China. In 2001, FIM had the privilege of producing her masterful album – River Of Sorrow. It has enjoyed numerous accolades and awards worldwide and is also one of the most successful and reputed titles hitherto in the FIM catalog. The pieces selected emerged as beautifully poetic and very much a reflection of Madam Min’s supreme artistry, especially the theme piece, “The Gossamer Song”. This piece is a palatial dance portraying the old myth of the love between a hero and the Moon’s Fairy. The celestial melody brings about a truly heavenly sensation to the listener.
