Gao's Harbor Music on CD

There are 21 tracks of waltz in the current CD of 'Gao's Harbor Music", which describe the harbor life in several world well-known cities like Shanghai, Hong Kong, Tokyo, New York, Sydney, St. Petersburg, etc. Melodies in this CD will give to the audience a feeling as though they are sitting in a boat moving over the surface of the calm river or the wavy sea. All of those delightful melodies were composed by Johnson Gao electronically. Most of them were created during the period of time from October through December 2008 based on his extensive worldwide traveling experiences through different years. Ten songs have two versions except track# 21 that has only one version. The total play time of the whole CD is one hour and 3:26. There are few things that the composer would like to tell the audience. Track #3 and track #13 are for the Islet Gulongyu, which is located in the East Sea near Xiamen (Amoy), China. Gulangyu means that the islet can make sounds like drumming caused by the incoming waves. That piece of music was composed on a touring bus after the composer visited the Ji Mei and Gulangyu. (See a photo of the front cover of the CD case). The original melody of that song was written on a piece of tissue paper. Actually, that song initiated the whole series of the current harbor music album. Track #4 and track #14 had used two melodies absorbed from the traditional Beijing Opera. People who love Beijing Opera may pay attention to that song, specially. Melodies in the track #8 and track #18 were modified from one of the oldest songs that he had ever composed many years ago for an ancient poem collected in 'Shi Jing' (The Bible of Poetry) written by the great philosopher Confucius two thousand years ago. Track #9 and track #19 are for the city of Suzhou - The Eastern Venice. The track #21 was composed for the Olympic Games in Beijing, 2008 entitled as - "Bon Voyage! Olympic Games' Athletes!" It has got another name - "A Russian Girl's Love Song". They were published as two MTV forms at http://youtube.com/raygao2000. I would like to mention another thing here that track #1 and track #11 are actually the same version. The track #11 was a misplaced when he checked the final CD published. The track that he had expected to use is another version that can be downloaded at http://www.lulu.com/content/4741095. The music sheet book of the CD is at URL below. http://www.lulu.com/content/5235985.
