Really, it is kind of strange that there is no good Chinese (at least know to me) recording companies. There is a huge number of good or sometimes even near-great Chinese musicians around the world and there is a nice positive momentum on academic music in contemporary China. Still, it looks like Chinese musicians run array from China as soon as they feel themselves potent… Do Chinese use musical skills as Jew used musical talents in odder to defeat the Jewish Radiuses in 19 century?
I wonder how different the situation for musicians would be if China have own good recording and marketing recourses for serious musicians. I mean some kind of Beijing version of EMI of a Shanghai version of DG… Even at the level of the small high quality private labels - it does not look that Chinese do any progress.
Japanese for instance have a huge network of small high quality private labels that record with very high quality. Unfortunately they recode mostly crappy music but still, there is a capacity to record in Japan. I can not recall that I have seen any interesting recording efforts in China. It is very unfortunate and let me know if I’ve missed anything….Rgs,
