Magic Zither

The zither is both – a popular instrument in the alpine region but also the generic name for one of the biggest families in the world of instruments. Members of the family include dulcimer and kantele, qin and koto, qanun and valiha, but also virginal and cembalo.
This musical trip around the world touches all styles and ages and presents on four CDs and an almost 4-hour DVD some of the most important representatives of the instrument - Georg Glasl (Germany) and Justin Vali (Madagascar), Zia Mohiuddin Dagar (India), Bob Van Asperen (The Netherlands), Jean Ritchie (USA), Guan Pinghu (China), Wanda Landowska (Poland) or Naná Vasconelos (Brazil) - besides lesser known but by no means lesser skilled artists and instruments from Africa, America, Asia, and Europe.
