By any definition, Tri Nguyen is an exceptional musician. He is a virtuoso classical pianist and one of Vietnam's greatest players of the traditional zither, the dan tranh. Not surprisingly, his previous albums have been collaborations of some sort. One with a western string quartet the other with Arabic oud player Qais Saadi. This, however, is his most ambitious album yet, with excursions to Africa, Brazil, Scotland, Kalmykia (a republic in Russia), Corsica and Vietnam. There are lots of surprises along the way, Nguyen's virtuosity bringing out the versatility of his instrument.
