1940 ca. The Yellow River Piano Concerto 2.00 stars  LP
The Yellow River Piano Concerto Comments:
No, this is not Christie. This is Chairman Mao: "Make the past serve the present and foreign things serve China". Now put all popular classics into a tumble dryer, and out comes a woolly fluff like this. Perfectly suitable for say a Steven Spielberg action movie. It is not art, it is not fun, it is what a Cultural Revolution would bring you.

So it is a race between piano and orchestra. .
